    That is an Eastern Bluebird.

    Someone else said Eastern Bluebird, and that may be correct. We don't
    see the Eastern Bluebirds down here, but the Painted Buntings winter
    in south Florida and pass through this area briefly on their way back
    north.

    No shit Sherlock. The good ones never get posted to the net. Though I have
    given one of these away as a print to strangers on occasion who couldn't
    afford my work. I don't consider any of these as marketable shots. That's
    why they're safe to post to the net. They are only meant to show that any
    good P&S in the hands of someone with talent can capture the same subject
    matter as any DSLR. I would never engage anyone on the net in some
    photographic artistic-talent challenge like some little girl's popularity
    contest. You'd all throw your cameras away after seeing what kind of base
    snapshooters you are, no matter the price of your cameras.

    John, if you really enjoy shooting small birds I highly recommend the
    Elizabeth Morton sanctuary which is located between Noyack and Sag Harbor.
    the best shooting area is about 50yds from the parking lot. At worst it's a
    great excuse to visit the East End.

    Plonk.

    The OP wanted to share some shots and is happy spring is around the corner.
    You are just being a first class jerk.

    If the past is any indicator, the small birds will be leaving within a week
    or two.
