No idea, but curious as to why you would like to know the identity of a dead bird.

Assuming it's in North America, it might be one of these:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Grosbeak
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_Finch
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_Finch
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassin%27s_Finch

You'll have to look at the maps of the ranges and work it out for your actual location.

It might also help to post a photo of its face and/or front. Beaks and breast coloring are often useful identifiers.
