I live in Bethlehem, CT, and cannot ID this bird I've never seen before. It was too elusive for a picture but here's a description - as best as I can.
It almost looks like a black-capped chicadee but a little smaller. Maybe about finch or warbler size. Black beak (finch type). It's back is dark gray, pure white belly, very black head, neck, and wings. A few white spots on the wings. It looked just black and white until I looked through binoculars. It also had a very soft single chirp.
It's not in any of my bird books, either: Birds of CT, The Birds Around Us, 250 Bird Sonds of North American Birds.
I would love to hear back with any info available.
