This sparrow was seen in southern Idaho this past weekend.  I believe it might be a Song Sparrow but not 100% positive.  Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you all so much!@!

Brewer's Sparrow. By far our most common sparrow found in the sagebrush. Also they tend to look the most plain.

I was torn between Clay-colored and Brewer's, but I think the streaks on the nape mean Brewer's.

Song would have dark streaks on the breast.

Edit-apparently was posting at the same time as Melierax!

Thank you both so much!  The picture was taken at the City of Rock National Reserve in southern Idaho and there was lots of sagebrush.

Clay-colored would be pretty rare in City of Rocks. I'm pretty sure they stop at Idaho's eastern border.
