That there looks like a Ragamuffin Sparrow to me! :)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That is a very unique sparrow type. Lovely photo. Hope the weather is being nicer to you. We had real spring weather after hopefully the last frost at night. It did not harm our Japanese Magnolias thank goodness. But we had really 70s today and even 80s in a couple of days.
Hugs,
Mariette
