Today, I saw a bird on one of my birdfeeders that I've never seen before. It is mainly black, although it's belly is bright red and the nape has a fairly bright yellow sheen over the black (almost like a wide band around the entire neck). I would guess is it no bigger than 3-4 inches. It didn't hang around long enough to get a pic of it. 

I live in Central Florida, and have seen quite a few migratory birds in my yard over the course of several years, but never this one before. I have two guide books and saw nothing even remotely close to this bird in either book. Any ideas on what it is?
Thanks!
