What was it?

I saw a dove-ish (or smidge larger) with brownish body but strikingly red feathers underneath.
What did I see 😁
Oh, I think it’s head was a darker color as well.

Update...it’s black, white and gray with red underneath...pigeon sized.

Let the process begin.
Could it be a Red-bellied Woodpecker?

The problem is I am very familiar with the Red bellies, this thing really stumped me.
It’ll go into the ‘Oh well ‘ category 😁

Have you considered Red-whiskered Bulbul? Not exactly pigeon sized, but color pattern matches. Depends on where in Miami you saw the bird. Also, I find habitat (on ground, canopy, etc.) and behavior to be really helpful when IDing mystery birds.

As Matt said, behavior and habitat can be very helpful to narrowing down the ID. Any more information would be helpful.

I saw it again this morning 1/6 in Hollywood.
It has distinctive red feathers under its wings.
A real head scratcher. Hopefully I’ll get a photo of it 😁

Robyn,

Have you considered Rose-breasted Grosbeak? Enjoy your day.

Sounds like a good description of the American Robin.
