Help needed with Orange/yellow and Brown Bird ID

Recommended Posts

Dry farmland area in Lincoln County, Washington near Davenport.  At first glance this bird reminded me of a Varied Thrush,  brown with orange/yellow eyebrow and scoopneck/chest patch,  but the beak is more like a grosbeak.  It spent several hours foraging for insects on the ground both in dry dirt areas and watered lawn.  Not bothered by other birds on the ground near it (robins, brewers blackbirds, house sparrows, chickens).  I would appreciate any help you could provide in identifying it.

Thanks.  I looked that up and it makes sense now.  I could have never come up with that on my own.
