I saw one just like this a few weeks ago in Forest Home, even returned later in the day hoping for second looks because I couldn't figure it out. The yellow crown was very distinctive as well as the eye-ring and there were no facial stripes and my books just weren't helpful. NOW I think it must have been an aberrant Ruby crown. Thanks for posting!
