Help to ID sparrow

That's a Lincoln's Sparrow. Note the gray face, buffy malar, and thin streaks overlaid with buff.

House Finches would have stouter, more conical beaks and blurrier streaking.

Thank You Akandula! That was one of my guesses, but the only picture I had ever taken of one the coloring was much darker. But then it could have been the exposure fooling me.

Agree.  The thin breast streaking is distinctive.
