Taken in Patagonia AZ (south of Tucson) in May 2011, thought it was a House Finch (female) but not sure.

With that curved beak and plain-ish face, I'd agree with female House Finch.

I agree with House Finch with the curved culmen, but it looks more like a juvenile with the large amount of thin breast streaking, plus the yellow flange.

What do you mean by yellow flange Liam? Is that gape?

Yes, the flange is the gape. If you looks closely it seems this bird still has some yellow skin there.
