Feeds at feeder in my backyard in Kentucky. At first I thought it was a young female Cardinal because there is a little blush color to it but the beak is not orange and not black around it.

Agree with the other post identifying this bird as a young female cardinal who just has not finished getting all her colors yet.

I have one just like it visiting my platform feeder and birdbath in Minnesota.
