Saltmarsh or Nelson's sparrows?

Recommended Posts

These photos were taken recently at Big Talbot State park (far Northeast Florida) at a location know for both Saltmarsh and Nelson's sparrows.  I had as many as six birds darting in and out of the rocks at high tide.  I believe some of these photos are of the same bird (but certainly not all).  Would like some ID help with those who have more experience differentiating the two species.  Thanks!

I have limited experience with these, but as someone who saw definite Saltmarsh yesterday, these look different.
