Hi Donna, I think it's a sparrow, take a look at Streaked Sparrows like Savannah Sparrow or Song Sparrow, also take a look at Rusty- Capped Sparrows like Chipping Sparrow.

Hope this is of help, I know how hard bird ID can be, and in your part of the world with as many as 28 species of Sparrow it must be even harder.
Regards John/Jumbo

Thanks, Guilio! 😄

Thanks, John. Upon further research I found that you are quite right...the bird in this photo is indeed a Sparrow! 😄
Cheers...Donna 😊

Thanks all!!!! 😄

Derek, yes I'm getting along great with this lens. Besides it's IQ, I love how lite-weight it is and the Quick Shift for focusing. I checked out your impressive bird pics taken with the Tammy 70 - 200...it looks to be pretty great lens in your hands! 😀
Cheers...Donna 😊
