Well I think it is a Savannah Sparrow.
Captured in our backyard on our Cherry tree.

- From meadows to marshland, and from temperate coastlines to tundra, the Savannah Sparrow is found in various open habitats throughout much of North America. It varies widely across its range, with 17 recognized subspecies.

Adult Description
Small songbird.
Brown or grayish-brown overall.
Streaking on back, breast, and flanks.
Yellowish eyebrow stripe.
Immature Description
Similar to adult, but buffier and with crown stripe indistinct. – ref: Cornell Lab of Ornithology
