Interesting Feeder Visitor!
It perched at this tube feeder for a while, at least 15-20 minutes that I observed.
It has a finch bill, but these colors I have not seen.
So I'm going to whatbird.com for assistance. The site's bird identification forum never fails in correctly naming bird types or confirming them for me.
This is no exception as the word from a couple fellow birders on whatbird.com tell me this is a Brown-headed Cowbird, a male juvenile.
Young fellow may be on his own for a short time. I hope you have a nice life and you are welcome at my feeders any time!
I have had adult male and female Cowbirds in my yard before, but never a juvenile.
