Spotted in Asheville NC Mountains

Extremely striking yellow bill on a small sparrow sized brilliant blue body. A finch was on the same feeder, and the finch was smaller and thinner. Not an Indigo Bunting-- the beak was very yellow and it was not a case of the sun reflecting off a beak! I can't find it in Peterson's.
