BIRD ID NEEDED

Answered
As I stated on TLLG's FB Page today, I had a newcomer (pictured here) visit my garden this morning (in NYC). I have never seen a yellow bird (other than Woodstock, Tweety as well as Big Bird) and I'm thrilled. I looked up info on both a yellow warbler and a yellow finch but this guy/gal doesn't seem to fall into either category!
I posted a different image of him/her on some "birding" venues (including Cornell @ ihttps://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=576253685757342&set=o.142914269087072&type=1) in the hopes of receiving help ID-ing my new friend but if I don't get a response, can anyone help me with this bird's ID?
