Immediately after posting the previous message about the Chipping Sparrow I 
looked again, this time with binoculars, and I think I may well have an 
American Tree Sparrow rather than a Chippie. That would be a feeder first. I 
got only a quick glimpse before the bird flew but I saw the bi-colored bill. 
Its back was to me so I couldn't see the breast spot. Well, I guess this means 
I have to sit at the window with binoculars ready until the bird comes back
