Dear Bryna,
My guess is that the bird was a Black Phoebe and it was sun-bathing, as birds sometimes do.

Bryan,

I observed this interesting behavior for the first time with a California Scrub Jay about a year ago so googled "bird on ground with wings spread" and there were many hits on the topic of birds sunning or sunbathing.  Here is a good site.
