Looks like a sparrow to me, but I'm not sure which one. Thanks.

Thank you tj. Was thinking white capped sparrow which I had seen last spring, but I didn't remember it having the yellow patch over it's eye.

Oh sweet Canada, Canada, Canada...........
I love their song.

Yes, that song really says spring.

Donnas- A quick way to tell them apart is the white crowned sparrow lacks the white throat.

I remember the difference by thinking that the white throat means they are singers that sing "Oh sweet Canada......"
