After consulting a couple guides, I believe this bird to be a blue grosbeak.

The primary indicator, best seen when zooming in (something I have not learned to do with PN, if it's possible) are the brown wings.

Indigo Bunting was what I was leaning towards as well, but I have yet to consult a bird book.

And, of course, close-ups are nice, but my cellphone can only do so much.

hard to tell without a better close up, but I think it's an Indigo Bunting
