Looks like this guy was born to ice skate! lol Too cute!
I think it is a fox sparrow.
almost reminds me of the redpolls i've been seeing on some blogs, but not quite... he's a beauty!
Yup, I think Don't Bug Me is correct. Looked up Fox Sparrows in 2 different bird books and they look very much like this fella. Supposed to be quite big too: 7". That's a big sparrow!
The only birds I ever see in the snow are the big black birds. I think all the rest of them leave here until the sun comes back again.
