Trying to identify a tiny Bird


I wish this were an emergency...but, this little one persihed in less than an hour of being brought here.

It appears to me to ba an adult, possibly a young adult.

Tail seems full length for their scale and size.

I think they may have had Canker, as there are yellow urate build up around the Vent.

I am wondering what Species this is - I have never seen so tiny a Bird around here before.

Weight is barely 3 Grammes, and, they are mostly Feathers as far as the scale of their appearence...possibly having lost weight from illness.

There is a line of demarkation visible in the Tail siggesting a period of malnutrition when the Tail was about 2/5ths grown...not noticable in this image.

Oh, that's so sad, I'm sorry.
I have alot of those in my hedge and shrubs - very tiny. I think their some sort of sparrow. The dull brown colored are the females.
I was mowing the lawn yesterday and found one of their nests under a shrub on the ground (empty) - it was no more than 3" in diameter!

Waynette,
Any chance you can get a picture of a healthy one? What color are the males? It sure looks very small.

They come through my yard fall and spring in large flocks. They are really adorable.

Wow...thanks Everyone.

Charis, I believe you are correct...the images and description for the Bush Tit seem to fit well.


I had never seen one here before.
