This bird was looking for food, but posed for the shot.

And a nice pose indeed....

Normally when identifying strange birds, I go to my fall back position of "Ivory Billed Woodpecker," of which I have many pictures shot in Brooklyn...:lol:

However, what you have here is a "Clarkes Nutcracker."

It's in the Jay family.

Thanks Dave for the info. Now I know what it is and can correctly name the picture.

They are excellent pictures of this bird!

Are you sure you don't want to use my intellectual position that it MUST be an Ivory Billed Woodpecker? Or failing that, A Carolina Parakeet? :lol:
