Sparrow - Lincoln's, Savannah, or ??

Recommended Posts

NYC May 19

I didn't recognize it even as a Sparrow when I saw it.  Looking at video today, I'm wondering if it's a Savannah or Lincoln because every few years I've seen both in this area.  Not enough color in the video to see clear markings -- except for the tan curve on its neck under its eye, which could mean Lincoln's.  (The vid-caps aren't enhanced.)

It looks brown to me. Also, the streaking below is too neat and thin for Savannah. The streaking on Lincoln's is ALWAYS laid over the buff portions of the underparts.

Thanks much, good info.
