In response to Cindy about the Bird ID-possible yellow-throated warbler I
believe it is a Black-headed grosbeak either an immature male or a female.
The white striped facial pattern with the white wing bars rules out any
warblers. Also I think the bill of the bird is partially obscured by being
the same color as the background, making the identification harder.
Black-headed grosbeak are a breeding bird in WA and nearby so this might be
a breeder starting it's migration to sunny Mexico!
