need to id this bird


i have seen this bird a few times within the last couple of days but i haven't seen one before that i know of. It feeds at my bird feeder. it doesn't seem to be very afraid of people like the sparrows are. it is smaller than a sparrow with a green head and breast and black and white strips on wings. I cant find any info of this bird anywhere. Please help.
