That isn't a cardinal with that distinct neck pattern and short beak.  It's got to be an exotic finch of some sort.

I was assuming that the white was just a reflection from the window. It seems like a normal young Northern Cardinal to me.

Ah, I think you're right now.  I can see the white area going beyond the neck.  Good job spotting that!

The 'white' shifts around on the face.  In the first photo, it's up over the eye.  In the second, it's well below it.  I'm like @The Bird Nuts, it fooled me too.  I thought for sure it was an exotic.
