Help me ID this bird please...

Recommended Posts

I saw this bird on July 21st in Colchester, Vermont while walking at Mcrae farm at about 10:00 am.  The  site is close to a river in a big hayfield with abundant wetland and forest nearby.  I think it may be a  breeding female America Goldfinch, but I have not seen one like this before and it does not look quite like what I see in Google search images.....Thanks in advance for any help!

Nice flight photos.

I'm going with female Brown-Headed Cowbird, but wait for confirmation, please.

Incidentally, be aware that images on search engines are not always accurately labeled.  They return photos based on the the original poster labeled them, and don't filter out the ones that are misidentified.
