Question My flying fantasy

What kind of bird have I captured on film?

It was perched in a tall evergreen overhead.

What is that??? From below it looks like a Grosbeak... sort of... if the shape of the beak was more rounded off but that could be the angle you took the photo from playing with the eye.

Very colorful bird, whatever it is. I'd be interested in knowing which species it is too.

I'm not very familiar with the warblers or tanagers, is it possibly one of those?
