I'd like to say Pine Siskin, but I don't see the slightest trace of yellow.  Maybe If it wasn't getting the right carotenoids while these feathers were developing?

What rules out a female House Finch?  The angle on the bill makes it tough for me to judge how heavy it is, but the bird does look a bit hefty for a PISI.

Pine Siskin is correct.  The streaking (on its belly, head, and back) is much too bold and the beak too thin at the tip for a House Finch.  Female Pine Siskins don't have much, if any, yellow in the wings.
