flocking with english sparrows below bird feeder.

(rural mid-Michigan)


It is about the size of a sparrow with a yellow beak but no wing markings and more of a blond color. He flies into the trees and back under the birdfeeder along with the other sparrows. No one seems to know this one and we would love some help!

Yes, it was under the finch feeder with dozens of golf finches and lots of junkos but this one stayed with the sparrows. I am thinking it was some sort of mutation or maybe an albino.
