    meadow pipit?

    Thanks for the help. I wasn't thinking juveniles at all! There was a pair, which made me think male, female. I managed to get a dozen good shots through my window, they were very cooperative. They're are first for me, I've seen adults before but not the youngsters. Nice to know they bred...
