Hello Tweeters,

I am reluctant to ask for help on this bird's ID because it
is so obviously seriously ill. It turned up on a friend's feeder. The
friend says it is bigger than a House Finch. That ID wouldn't work anyway
because the beak is grosbeak-like and the culmen is straight. But it can't
be a grosbeak..

Could it be a juvenile crossbill without a very crossed bill?

I feel like I should be able to ID this bird right away, but
am flummoxed. Charlotte Byers, Edmonds.
