Blue Grosbeak?

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird foraging with a few House Finches and quickly realized it wasn't a House Finch.  It stumped me at first, but I was able to get a few photos of it.  I'm like 99% sure it's a young Blue Grosbeak, but I thought I'd post the photo for a second opinion.  Thanks...

It is a House Finch.  It appears to be a young one with the visible gape and light brown edged feathers.  A Blue Grosbeak would have a larger beak and no streaking.

Agreed on both accounts.
