Sparrows in the reeds -- Song, Savannah, or something more special?

Recommended Posts

These are all Savannah Sparrows (I think #3 is, but it's tough to tell). Small bill, yellow in the eyebrow, dark malar, white throat, streaking below, likely pinkish legs. 

I saw your post on EBB and Nelson's Sparrow would have and orange lores, supercilium, and subauricular area, dark post ocular stripe, less pronounced streaking on the breast, and a faint wash of orange on the upper breast and flanks...typically. 

There is much regional variation in both SAVS and NESP, but these are SAVS.
