This bird is twice the size of a sparrow. She has a touch of yellow under her wing when she flies away but like I said she is twice the size of yellow finches or sparrows? Or point me in the right direction to find a name.

That is it. I've seen a male only once last year and didn't know what it was. After checking out your info I'm sure it is a Grosbeak. Thank you so much.
