Seen feeding around a bird bath and preening in the backyard. Was present for ~3 hours. Unsure of its identity initially, we consulted our local experienced birders, and then the regional reviewer, John Sterling, who has identified it as a Brewer's Sparrow. We also see striking similarities with this bird and the photos of a Brewer's Sparrow in Nick Lethaby's article "Hind-neck Pattern, An Additional Aid in Identifying Spizella Sparrows in Fall and Winter" http://aba.org/birding/2014-JAN-FEB/Jan-Feb_2014_10-Lethaby.pdf.
