    Question Unidentified Bird


    I hope this finds you all well & happy. I am new to this forum & I am hoping that someone can help me to identify a bird that frequents our bird feeder. I cannot find it in any of our bird books nor have I found it on any birding websites. I have attached pictures that display the bird from various angles as well as one with a Carolina Chickadee for size reference.
    As far as habitat, we live in a suburban/rural neighborhood with much woodland & prairie surrounding us. We live in NC about 1 hr North of SC. It is currently in the 40's. The bird seems to feed both at the feeder & on the ground.
    Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day!

    A part-albino of something. Best guess on shape and bill colour is Dark-eyed Junco.

    An ugly critter. Looks more like Chipping Sparrow to me.
