I was wondering when I saw that report if perhaps they were actually
American Tree Sparrows?

Someone reported four chipping sparrows at the feeder yesterday. That's a
very unusual sighting for this time of year. Where was this?
Speaking of sparrows - I counted fourteen tree sparrows day before
These little guys usually come to my feeders in flocks of 2 to 5. I've never
seen so many at one time.
