At first glance, I thought it was a thrush, but I think it may be a song sparrow....?
Dennis may be able to answer this one too... ;)

A friend says it looks like a female rose-breasted grosbeak.

I also believe that's a female rose-breasted grosbeak.  Theres a lot of them around right now, but not for long!

I'm not particularly good at little brown jobs so I leave it to you all to debate one possibility vs another  ;D

Your bird looks like a female Red-winged blackbird. Here are two pics to compare the Grosbeak to the Red-winged blackbird.

Looks like a female red-winged blackbird to me, so you are probably right, RCF... Now we just need Dennis to weigh in. LOL! ;)
