Thanks everyone for the quick suggestions, I'm going to agree with the juvenile Red-Winged Blackbird identification. Especially with the yellow on its face. And especially since there were adults of that variety around the ponds. It's always a treasure hunt, isn't it? Appreciate the responses and support!! Sandi Morey

Hi Sandi, Tom mentioned House Finch, but have you considered juvenile Red-winged Blackbird? Bill looks a bit pointy for finch. Hope this helps!

Any thoughts on what this might be? It was hanging out yesterday morning at Cannon Beach's settling ponds. With the yellow color on face and with no reference guide I considered "Savannah" but it doesn't have a light chin patch, chest seems too striped. Looks like a newbie. Ideas?
