I think this is a sparrow, but do not know which.  Can anyone help?

It was spotted on June 10th, 2020 in Corpus Christi Texas

Welcome to Whatbird!

That’s a female/young male House Sparrow. Note the buffy appearance, pale eyebrow, and stout bill.

Definitely a House Sparrow, but it's quite a weird molt/plumage- the back patterning is completely missing, and it has dark in places that neither male/female House Sparrow usually has. Perhaps some pigment disorder?
