I was unable to identify this bird. I believe it's juvenile, based on the fact i was able to walk within 20 feet and he didn't fly off and he seemed a little clumsy on the feeder too. At any rate, the pictures leave a lot to be desired, it was taken from my camera phone. I'll provide some description since the picture may not be that helpful. His back is solid dark brown and it gradually turns to a solid light brown on the sides, then the chest is solid white. The beak is black. The top of his head has a small crest similar to a cardinal, however when he was scared it disappeared. He had no striations in color, Dark Brown>Light Brown>White. I also noticed a slight dash of white on his back (maybe his wings), it was about the size two small sunflower seeds. Overall, he was the size of a cardinal. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
