I am not sure what sparrow? this may be.

I think it is a sparrow of some sort. I did not hear any vocalization. The color of the throat and lores are causing me some confusion.

By the size, I would think your bird is a female Red-winged Blackbird in summer plummage. I have them around my wetland and that is exactly what they look like. Yellowish colour close to the eyes and under the beak. The White-throated Sparrow is smaller and and is not as heavily streaked as your bird.

He is some sort of sparrow. If the photo were a little larger I might could tell. He looks like awhite throated sparrow,but like you said the coloring is a bit confusing.
