What kind of bird is this?

by Mike Granby

While relaxing in my backyard and watching the neighbourhood birds bathing and drinking from my pond waterfall in Hamilton on a Saturday afternoon, along came a small black and orange bird, which I thought might be some kind of a Wren.

It was nervously hopping and changing directions with his tail feathers slightly pointing upward, took a bath.

I caught him with these pictures and thought someone might know what he was.

Thanks for the info and picture - I don't know what this might be, but perhaps one of our readers will know.

I will also post this on our facebook page.
