Can you help identify this weird, yet apparently friendly bird?

A few friends of mine live in Somerville, MA, which is right outside of Boston. For the past few weeks, a bird has been repeatedly showing up on their porch and, apparently, making friends with them. [more inside]

Wait, they MIGRATE too?! This is impossible.

Mefi birdwatchers, i need help! I'm looking for the most authoritative and comprehensive book(s) on the indigenous birds of Arkansas. Bonus points if it's fancy and the kind of thing you could put on your lap while sitting on the porch and bird watching. [more inside]

What type of bird is this?

I saw this bird this morning in the bottle brush in my back yard. It kept giving out a single "tweet" every ten seconds or so. One of the photos is an action shot, but I've never seen such a flashy bird where I live - Los Angeles. Does anyone know what it is?

Where do the birds go when it rains?

BirdFeederFilter: When it's gloomy and rainy, I don't see any birds at my birdfeeder for days on end. Then as soon as it's sunny, they're all over the place. What gives? What do they do on rainy days, just forage near their nest? Don't birds gotta eat when it rains?
