I spotted this bird in a canyon in Lincoln County, Wa.  I'm hoping someone here can help me identify it.

Streaky brown appearance on sparrow-like bird with thick conical bill = female-type finch. 

Very sharp point on long bill rules out House Finch, suggestive of Cassin's over Purple, along with the lack of a prominent eyeline.

Thank you so much for the help!
