Hi Marlene, I have some questions for you that might help us ID the bird.
How big is it compared to a robin?
you say grey with brown on top.
What color is the birds body?
what color is the head?
does it eat on the ground or from a hanging feeder?
are there any other markings or color?
does it perch in a tree or only on the ground?
