Re: possible Indigo Bunting, Richmond

Alan (and others),

I saw a couple of similar birds on Vollmer Peak on the 8th. I couldn't
positively id it either.
Photos start here:

If you get a good id, I can update mine photos also.

Anyone want to take a stab at this ID? Juv. bunting in my yard this
morning. The throat seems pretty white and contrasty, and there were
streaks on the flanks and possibly faint streaking on the breast. This
made me think Indigo was a possibility, but I'd love to hear from the
experts. Bird is gone now.

This is in Richmond View not too far from Wildcat Canyon Park, Contra
Costa County. I haven't seen the bird since taking the photographs.

Thanks for any on- or off- list comments on the ID of this bird.
