Can you help me identify this bird?

Nanaimo, Canada

Hi I grew up on the Canadian prairies, with similar bird to Montana, but when I moved to Vancouver island, we get birds like Seattle, and this bird here is supper common, but there is nothing like it where I am from. Does anyone know this guy? You can also hear the trill call it makes at this web address -- since video is not permitted on this site.
