Hello, Haven't seen this bird before at my backyard feeder. Need help with ID...I'm guessing it might be some kind of sparrow? This is in Northern New Mexico near the Colorado border, and the environment is high elevation desert sagebrush scrub. Colors on this bird were all a cool grey/black (not brown). Wondering if it could be migratory, as I've noticed a few less commonly seen birds just this week.
NYC, Oct. 25, 2018. When I saw it, I thought it was a Song Sparrow. But looking at the video, I'm not sure. The markings, especially the white areas under and around the beak, say Song Sparrow. It's the pale, lacking contrast, feathers which are confusing me. Thanks, Kami
