Could this be a golden crowned sparrow? I was looking out window and saw two birds with this bright yellow crown. Taken today in central texas. Sorry about the poor picture, its actually a photo of a picture taken thru a screened window.

I sure hope it is! That would make 2 lifers for me this year, the other being a purple finch.

Yellow-rumped Warbler, actually.  Notice the bluish back, head, and streaking on the flanks, the white eye arcs, throat, and belly, and the yellow patch on the side near the shoulder.
