I received this email from Jack Hilsabeck and he subsequently emailed me a post of a photo of the bird. I downloaded the photo to my "flickr" account and it can be viewed here.

Larry:  I was sent this photo of a bird that that was taken today in andrew county near Savannah, MO.  The bird was feeding under a feeder and was very close.  The head of the bird is towards the camera and its tail is away from the camera.  It was feeding with a group of juncos and was there only briefly and did not return.  What are your thoughts about the identify of this bird.  He thinks he knows what it is and I think he might be right.  He did see the front of the bird but did not get a photo.
