Montreal Bird Sighting - Need Help with ID

Hi every body ....this is my first post.
The last 3 years my son and I have started to keep a list of birds that visit our feeder.
We live about 45 minutes north of Montreal in the Laurentians, in town called St Sauveur.

This weekend ( April 30th ) we found a bird at our feeder that we have never seen before and can't identify.
It probably is quite a common bird but if anyone could identify it for us it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Fred & son.

The yellow lores are more prominent in some White-throateds than others - yours has some of the most prominent I've ever seen!

White-Throated Sparrow. Comes in a tan stripe version that can get you scratching your head. Look for the yellow lores, that's the key.
