Field Sparrow

www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/field_sparrow/id

 

This hearty little bird was fluttering in mid air after the gnatlike, winged insects that were about yesterday in the comparatively warm low 30's. When he caught one, he hacked a bit, expelling wings perhaps, but got it down. Otherwise, he was sucking on blades of grass. One tough little cookie.
