That's a much yellower throat and belly than I am used to on this species. Do you remember if you photoshopped this a lot?

You are an upright and noble man! I can't think of another North American bird that has that bill and that blue chevron, other than a very young Indigo Bunting. BTW, I saw Indigo Bunting yesterday, a gorgeous singing male, right here in coastal California! We get usually one or two a year/county out here, and even more on the eastern side of the state.

Oh, and on your second photo, you can still see the juvenile gape.
