Saw it in my backyard in the Bay Area, CA around 11 am today. It is similar to female house finch, but... it looked more white, and I haven't seen house finches feeding on the ground, while this bird did.
Saw this bird in my backyard in the Bay Area, CA today. I've tried to crop the photo quite a bit to get a closer look; and it was shot when it was getting dark in the evening.
Pictures 1-3 were taken separately from Pictures 4-7. Are they the same bird? Thank you.
