On behalf of Larry who sent in an email:-

Medium size bird is a little smaller than a Robin. The brown is richer than in photos, almost rust color.

Near Selkirk MB, seen for 2 years now in Feb. Never earlier, Never later.

Can anyone identify?

Pretty sure that's a Pine Grosbeak.

Either an adult female or an immature male. In it's second year the male will be predominantly a rosy red colour but will keep its brown wings with white wingbars
