***late*** My latest ever here. Feeding with Am Tree Sparrows and Evening Grosbeaks on table. Small long tailed sparrow. Crown brown streaked not rufous as in Tree Sparrows or summer plumage. Tan eyebrow, dark eyeline, cheek brown, lores dark. Dark eye with fine white arcs above and below. Nape gray. Bill appeared pinkish with some dark on upper mandible. Breast clear gray with no spot as in ATSP and no streaking. Some buff on side which was not captured by the photo. Streaky brown wings and back. Wings had two weak wing bars. Tail dark brown/gray. Legs pink. Unsure of age but seems buffy enough to be a first winter bird.
