What bird is this

by Ann
(Northern Alberta Canada (Grande Prairie area))

I live I the Grande Prairie area and have been hearing the prettiest song from a bird. I have lived here 20 years and not heard this song. I have tried to see the bird when it sings but never could spot it. Now I know why, it is so tiny. This morning as I having coffee at my window,( I have very dense Verginia Creepers almost covering it and all over the front of the house). I've seen it for a brief moment, and it was gone. I'm thinking it's a male, for the rather warbler like singing. It is the size of a yellow warbler and not more then 4 inches long from beak tip to tail, Warbler type tail). It was a cream color with lots of very rusty speckles all over it.
