I was walking out from work today around 4 and saw this little one sitting on a window sill. A House Sparrow popped up on the same ledge so it was a nice size reference because the sparrow was slightly smaller than this one.

All help is appreciated!

Hey thanks! I was so surprised it just sat outside our break room window like that.

Agree with Grashopper Sparrow. One of the prettier sparrows if you get to see it close up, which it looks like you certainly did. Look at that patterning.

May have crashed into the window and was "dazed and confused" for a bit.

Yeah, that would make sense. Just a stroke of my good luck to see a life bird when I wasn't even birding!

It took me years to get one... so new UNOFFICIAL rule, you can only count life birds when seen while birding!!! :D

Just kidding, congrats... oh and it did eventually fly away right?

Lol well if that's the case...:P

I don't know if it did. I was in a rush when I left but it was so pretty I had to stop and take a quick pic. I hope it was ok.
