Default Bird ID, Please :)

I spotted this while taking some photos of a nuthatch. I don't recognize it, but I'm hardly an expert.

Bird ID, Please :)-dsc02761-crop.jpg

Anyone out there know what it is?

Thanks.

Cool. Thanks, recurve.

I was too lazy to go get the bird book...besides, I wanted to share the picture and the experience.

Thanks again.

Thanks, I don't really know my sparrows. The fox sparrow is so much larger! Very cool.

(I've had the tree sparrows before, but I think this is the first time for a fox sparrow.)

Thank you. Hopefully he'll (she'll?) come back...and with a mate. I'd like to get a more attractive photo next time.
