I'm not very knowledgeable about birds but I have a few bird books at home that I can check.
Did you see this bird in the southern ontario area?
Maybe it was a Field Sparrow - but they have more of a pinky colour - on their legs as well.
Or maybe the House Finch - the male has some red on its head but also a bit on the front - the female doesn't have these marking though.
But I don't think either of these have a white eye-marking - I'm not sure though!
Hopefully a knowledgeable bird watcher will be of more help!
