Went back to Cabrillo Beach in Los Angeles County today to try to get better looks at the Little Blue Heron (unfortunately did not see it), but I did spot this sparrow. Is it possible--did I maybe finally see a Fox Sparrow? 

Also saw a very pale gull--immature Glaucous-Winged Gull?

Thanks for any help!

The first is a Fox Sparrow, and I believe it's of the Sooty subspecies, though I'm not an expert on Fox Sparrow subspecies and I'm sure there are west coast birders who could tell you for certain. The second may be ok for pure Glaucous-winged considering the light primaries, though it is a bit dark and dingy overall.
