With the pale bill and the streaking on the relatively pale upper breast, I'd say female Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Was that what you were hoping for?

Any possibility of it being a Female Purple Finch?

I was afraid of that. I already have a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak and told my son I thought that's what she was. Thank you Limpkin.

Purple Finch would be good but this bird was slightly larger than a Finch. Thank you though.
