Melospiza melodia. 5-6 inches male, female and juvenile similar

You will rarely find this tiny sparrow high in a tree---they are ground feeders and will nest in brush or a very low shrub branch---This one was scratching in the grass for insects and seeds.

IN your yard yesterday, Jenn? A gorgeous day today...if a guilty pleasure. A little on the warm side.

And, good capture and photo. And thanks for your UA.
