I saw this small bird at Hawk Cliff Woods, that overlooks Lake Erie. Date taken May 15th.

Thanks but the markings on the face don't match the Grossbeak, or a young Red Winged Blackbird.

The photo I submitted shows a small dark brown or black striped bird with white background with a peach coloured face and white patch above the eye.  

The pics in this post do not match what you just described. The pics match every marking for a rose breasted grosbeak.

Yes it’s black and white. I was responding to your description of markings on the face in particular.

Sorry.  I should have checked the bird.  I posted two birds. First time posting.  I can see now.  I think the lack of the red breast through me off.  Thank you.  Much appreciated.

Me too, but I think the photo is underexposed.

The bird was quite a distance away.  I was lucky to even get that one.  I have a better camera now 🙂.  If it turned slightly it might have revealed the red breast.
