Chris and Pat,
The photos are pretty dark, but it looks like a Swamp Sparrow.

This sparrow was seen today late-I took photos from my window, I think that some are OK but I can't ID the bird.  It twitched its tail constantly and hopped rather than fly when other birds spooked.  It kept to itself.  Can anyone help?
