This is an American Pipit. It stayed in Alaska for the summer and was headed south. We don't know for sure but believe it is a victim of a window hit. It was found hoping around which is normal but would not take off when approached. After coming to the center and being examined we found it had a shoulder injury. He should recover and we'll try to find a flock for it to joint on a trip down south.
I apologize about the picture. The little bugger wouldn't stay still long enough to get a good shot. On it's chart it says it's very active. I concur.
