Bird Friend

I have had the same bird come to my house everyday for the past 3 months. It didn't migrate for winter (live in Chicago). He returns every night or when there is bad weather. He doesn't seem bothered by anyone coming and going. His little perch is right by my door. He appears to be a grey/brown color and has a black mask. He is always really balled up and appears to have no neck.

House Sparrow
by: Anonymous

It's a House Sparrow and it's a male. They exist as close to humans as possible and will shelter right against a house or under an eave with no fear at all.
