This one has me stumped. I set up the bird cam at maximum telephoto to see what will not come as close to the house. This is a small bird, 4.5 to 5 inches. It moved around very fast.
Can anyone ID this one for me? Thank you very much.

It is probably a Lincoln's Sparrow.

I agree, Lincoln's. I had one of these that skulked around the aviaries and began sneaking in the seed room when the door was open. Became kinda tame before it continued on it's migration.
