Thanks, Phil!  It’s likely a window strike that did this little creature in. The pot where I found her/him was just below the picture window in my living room. Although I have several things hanging to try to help birds avoid the window, strikes still happen from time to time. 

I reached out to State of California Wildlife this afternoon and they did not want the bird as they said “these small songbirds are generally at a lower risk for avian influenza. Species at highest risk tend to include waterfowl, and other waterbirds.”

However, San Diego Museum of Natural History wants the specimen so I’ll get that to them soonest. 

Thanks all who contacted me to help with ID!
