small, very bright yellow/almost orange whispy tail feathers.

light grey to pale yellow body
long pointed beak and a very distinct black mask around the eyes (like a Zorro mask)
grey tufted feather, like a cock's comb crown on its head

I think it was a baby and was learning to fly....as it sat very still on a branch, as we approached,,it did not fly until we moved the branch
North Western Pa. wooded area.
