Streaked breast with light stripe over eye Tomball, TX

(Tomball, TX)

This bird reminds me of a song sparrow only bigger. Very streaked breast and back is not solid. Basically brown and white. It is about the size of a robin. The tail is on the short side and has a beige streak above the eyes. I can't get a good photo of it. It eats the seeds from the bird feeder. Sunflower seeds, cracked corn, millet mostly.

Thank you. You are so right. It most definitely is a female red winged black bird. This reminds me of when I first moved to the Gulf South and could not identify the female Great tailed grackle. It took me a few years to identify it in the years before Internet.

Becky, your description sounds a lot like a female Red-wing Blackbird. The first time I saw one, I had no idea what it was because they look so different from the male.
