Does it just hold on with one leg?

This is from a post on Facebook I "shared," and now people are asking me what kind of bird it is. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, Brook and Barbara--I appreciate your taking the time to cimment. Now that I look at it more closely to analyze it in light of your observations, it certainly could be.a sparrow of some sort based on the markings on the sides of the head, and it is likely to be a European variety because I shared the photo from a French FB page which has many unusual birds.

It looks just like my many little sparrows that come to the backyard, but, I can't imagine anyone not knowing a sparrow so it must be some other bird. I don't know a lot about birds but I have learned there are several varieties, and cousins.
