We saw this bird on 11/8/14 on South Padre Island at the Valley Fund Lots. ID help is appreciated.

Thank you!

Female Blue Grosbeak? Bill looks too big for Indigo Bunting which is the next best option.

Any more pics showing the wings?

No better pictures of the wings. Good call. I just checked ebird and someone reported a Blue Grosbeak on the same date.

Shade of blue visible is good for blue grosbeak at well.
