Mystery sparrow?

Recommended Posts

This dusty blue sparrow(?) has been pecking and digging in the leaf litter in our yard. It hops into the bushes when startled. We haven't seen it fly yet. I will post a video once it finishes uploading to YouTube. Our best guess: Savannah Sparrow?

Where: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

When: May 5 at 5pm MST

You guys are AMAZING! He wasn't in any of our bird guide books. Confirmed it with Cornell's Birds of the World online. Thank you! Thank you! Here's a straight-on shot. Don't mind the crappy picture quality. This is a first for this species in our yard.
