Today Western New York. 
 

this sparrow threw me off because it has a pinkish-orange bill. The environment is perched on a tree branch overlooking a tall grassy area. It is smaller than the size of a song sparrow and I believe those don’t have pinkish-orange bills. I also believe that the tail is too long for Savannah Sparrow. It also has very light brown streaking on the breast. My only other thoughts would be Swamp Sparrow or Clay-Colored Sparrow. Clay-Colored is rare, although they are known to breed in this part of the state.  Thanks!

Maybe a young Chipping with those dark lores.
