Lincoln's seconded. Note the buffy submoustachial, very weak, almost imperceptible dark malar (Songs have a very strong, broad, dark malar streak), very fine streaking underneath, buffy on breast and flanks, overall more delicately patterned in less bold colors than Song, with lots of grays and pale browns, rather than darker browns and rufous tones that a Song would have. Lincoln's are such a beautiful sparrow, a study in how delicate but distinct patterning of drab colors can create subtle yet exquisite beauty.
