I don't know why, but I see a Titmouse. Not as big as a robin, obviously.... but your description fits. Especially the orange flanks. They have a black tuft on their head, dark and long tail.
Just a thought.

> OK, so the bird came back and I took a photo with my blackberry. It's a terrible photo compounded by the fact our glass is gold tinted.
> Defniitely not a mockingbird. I saw it flying and there were no wing bars. Im not ruling out Shrike but definitely couldnt see the beak from where I was standing.
> The tail was long and dark with a slight split at the end. The rest of the bird was mostly white with some streaking on the head and someone said they saw some orangish on its belly but I did not. The bird was definitely the same size as the robin.
> maybe someone else can make sense of the horrible photo.
