I saw a bird with a dark back, bright yellow from throat to belly, and almost complete white eye ring. I knew this would be an unusual sighting so I made sure it wasn’t a similar species but couldn’t think of any other species with these field marks. It was in the brush behind the long pile of, I assume, hurricane debris, just past where that wood pile ends, near the pink building used as the current bathrooms. It was visible for 30-45 seconds, I’d say, and then went back into the brush. It never vocalized and never came back out. The painted bunting pair was seen in the same area about 10 minutes later.
