Default yellow-throated vireo or warbler?

Caught this little bird in my crab apple tree. It's very much winter outside which makes me doubt my initial ID as a vireo, as the vireo should have migrated. Taken in southern NH yesterday with e-pl2 and 70-300mm zuiko

Thanks for looking! It was eating the crabapple leftovers from the pine grosbeaks but left the suet alone.

OK, I may have it. I think it is an American Goldfinch, non-breeding male or female. Check out this website, look through the photos for the non-breeding coloring:

Saly I think you got it! thanks for the leg work. My bird book doesn't have the non-breading male in it, but the wings sure are gold finch.

Cardys thanks for the confirmation!

Looks like American Goldfinch in winter plumage. By mating season he'll be back to his bright yellow colors that we're more used to seeing
