We received this on Saturday from our reader Sharon in Michigan:
 
My husband went out to feed the birds yesterday. We live in southern Michigan. While he was out there a sparrow size bird with orange on the belly, white wing bars, and a pointy beak landed on his arm! We have not seen this kind of bird before and can't find it in our books. Does anyone have an idea of what it could have been?

There is a bird called a brambling that looks kind of like that or also a bay-breasted warbler, there is also the eastern towhee. Those are the ones I found in my ibird app that fit that description for that area but if you had a picture it would make it easier.
