Looks like one to me. There seems to be a seepage of these down the Cascade summit right now.

The bird let me take several photos and did not immediately fly away. I thought it was larger than a robin. The closest id I can attribute to the bird is female pine grosbeak. The bird had a yellowish head, gray chest, white wing bars, yellow at the base of the tail and an a substantial beak. Attached are a couple of photos. Could someone help with my id? First time posting to this group so not sure how the photos will come across. I was using an older iPhone, so resolution is not great. Thanks for your help.
