Hi Zellene,
Possibilities that come to mind include House Finch, Purple Finch, Field Sparrow, and Lazuli Bunting (rare).

Then noticed a pale rosy color across the upper breast. Definitely not a bluebird! It had the upright flycatcher posture, dark head and wings and pale grey breast except for the pinkish swath. No photos, unfortunately. Any ideas?
