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.

> 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.
