Good morning, I'm hoping to get some help identifying this bird that showed up at my feeder on Saturday here in central North Carolina. There were actually three here a once, and I only managed this one photo through the window before the exodus. I thought it was some sort of finch, since it looks so similar to a female house finch, except for the blue of course?

Sorry, but I don't see any photo. A quick guess based on your description would be Indigo Bunting.

Does it look like the bird in my avatar? If it has a big ass honkin' finch-like beak, it might be a Blue Grosbeak.

Oh, you posted the URL in the tag field. Let me post it for you:

This, to me, looks like a juvi Eastern Bluebird. But you might want to wait until someone who knows what they are talking about weighs in before you decide I'm right.
