That's not a sparrow!
That is an American Goldfinch!
Goldfinches are not uncommon to my state.
I live in one of the "probable" squares on the map,
but I consider these a rare treat in my tiny urban backyard.
Oh, look ... this colorful little guy has a pretty mate!
I am seeing these two regularly on my feeder.
I am hoping they are nest building near me and will be bringing the babies in a few weeks.
Makes my day very sunny and bright ... :)
