Not sure what kind of bird (female?) this is or if I should intervene. Hanging out on my porch this evening, puffed up like it's cold, barely moving. Suggestions? Leave it be? Or see if it likes the box I lined with a towel? I don't want to stress it out by catching it unnecessarily.
While darker in color it's reminiscent of a common house finch. Black & dark brown markings, a dark grayish-brown body. Eyes are slightly bigger than a finch.
