    I live in South Central Idaho. Many feeders out, and mostly see Finches. Saw one today that I've never seen before and I can't find anything on the web...

    Appeared to be a finch, but possibly a grosbeak. Had the body color of a Goldfinch - had the stripes on the black/dark wings, but .... a beautiful bright blue head. Turquoise blue - just the head...

    Any suggestions? - Came and went before I could get the camera out..... but I'm prepared now if he returns.. lots of good food and water, perhaps he'll stick around..

    thanks,

    maybe a painted bunting? I don't know of any birds, at least not resident birds (tropical species might), that are bright yellow with bright blue heads.
