Silhouette pic, tough to ID

Hmmm.... the shape and behavior look good for Northern Shrike, and I think I see a white spot on the wing, but I don't think I can say for sure.

I zoomed in on Flickr. This looks like a House Finch (red wash on the head and upper breast, streaking on the flanks). If you lighten up the photo, it'll probably be much clearer.

Taken in SE Michigan. That brown streaking alone eliminates Purple and Pine.

Oops -- I saw that the poster is in BC, missed that the pic was taken in Michigan.

Looks like a Song Sparrow to me..... but hard to tell.

Did you see Matt Dash's lightened version? It's pink...

Wow, you guys are amazing! Thanks for the help lightening the image, Matt. It's like a group of avian detectives her :)

We moved to BC from Michigan last summer. I am slowly but surely finding the bird photos I had taken in MI and having them identified. Plus I M learning the western birds :)

Thanks again!
