Unknown bird zone
I saw this little "fella" for the first time this morning! I apologize for the quality of the pics, too. The scrub jays kept showing up at the feeders and scaring off the smaller birds, so I had to be quick. LOL
Anyway, he's larger than a sparrow, and he has a beautiful, mustard-yellow chest, with some of the yellow streaked throughout his wing area (when at rest, anyway). He has 2 white crown stripes, one over each eye, extending from the bill to the back of his neck. His bill is pretty chunky. I tried looking up just about every sparrow and/or finch, but nothing seems to match. Hope one of you can help me ID this beauty!
