Not a rare bird per se, but there's been a yellow variant male Cassin's finch at our feeders for the last couple of days.  He has a yellow-orange crown and not too much other color--the pinkish hue found on most males' chests isn't there at all.  A quick check on line suggests that this is quite unusual for Cassin's finch.  I'm attaching a couple of cropped cell phone pics that give a pretty good idea of what he looks like.
