Seems to me like a House Sparrow

the beak doesn't seem to be the right shape though.

we think it could be a grasshopper warbler.

we are in it's summer range and the terrain where the photo was taken is thick rough grass which is it's habitat.

this is a photo of the area where the photo was taken:

I will agree with Grasshopper Warbler

Travelers Rest, SC(Zone 7a)

Definitely a Grasshopper Warbler.

Oceanside, United States

Its simple to identify the bird since I have a bird book which I brought from the book store. I have memorized quarter of the birds but the rest is hard to memorize. Other than that if I get confused then I use google to search by adding descriptions.
