Has been around here, Beaver Lake area for a few weeks....brownish head, first time I've ever seen them! Sorry, no pic. I think they are migrating, no? Are they common?

I have had one around the deck for a few days now. A couple of years ago they nested in the front garden. They have been coming here for a few years now.
