Identify salmon pink breasted bird

A few months ago, we were driving down our dirt road. I spied an unusual looking bird on a barbed wire fence. We went back and looked. I would say that it was a lark or something of that nature, but am no expert. It was maybe 5 inches from beak to tip of tail feathers. Had some brown and black on the back/wings. to see it from the side or behind, it wasn't unusually remarkable. But the thing that caught my eye was this gorgeous salmon pink breast. What a beautiful and unusual sight! It flew off a little way and stayed right there in the meadow.

We live in Northwestern part of Arkansas. Any help would be appreciated, I would like to attract this bird to a feeder, but don't know what kind nor what to offer.

Well I googled "pink breasted birds" and I came up with this:

Unfortunately none of those birds usually live in Arkansas but take a look and see what you think . . if you click on those links find the one that looks closest and then take a look at the section labeled similar birds and see if you can find a match which actually lives in your state LOL

Good Luck and let us know if you find it!
