I am a long time, relatively novice bird watcher. I have twice now briefly seen a confusing bird at the feeder. We have a number of white throated sparrows, and it resembled one (head stripes, light throat) but with a big spot in the middle of the breast. It also has what I call black "wiskers" coming down from the bill.
The breast spot doesn't look like the type of spot I have seen on song sparrows - there is no streaking near it.
Any better suggestions for possible identification and field marks I should look for next time it shows up?
