What bird is this, a warbler or finch?

Look at the bill. It seems to long and narrow to be a goldfinch. A goldfinch has the classic triangle shaped beak.

I originally paused at that myself.  I think the full facial feathers haven't come in yet, making the bill look a bit longer than normal.  Also, we're viewing the bill from below to some extent, an unfamiliar angle.

I'm certainly open to other species!

I think it is a juvenile pine warbler. They would have the yellow here and there. Have the same bill type, and all the other details.

I think the bird is either a pine warbler or American goldfinch. Both birds would have the line going through their eyes. Both would have the wing bar. Both birds have a notched tail. And both live in the area.

Size can be very difficult to judge from photos like this, but I’m getting the feeling it’s larger than a warbler. Additional photos would really help.

Young Baltimore Oriole?

My initial reaction and then I started to think of other options.

Passerine sp. or unidentifiable.

Maybe the best option.
