Sparrow ID - Delaware

Recommended Posts

Saw these two sparrows back on March 19 scurrying along tire tracks left in the sand on the beach in Fenwick Island State Park (Delaware). Unfortunately, it was a very gray, windy and cold day and I only had my iPhone for grainy/blurry pictures, per my usual luck, so some of the detail in coloring is lost. The reason I noticed the sparrows, was their very distinctive, heavy patterning especially along their outer/upper wings and back, also the head. Plus, they were large and moving super fast through the tire impressions as though it were their own personal speedway. 
I thought  Savannah sparrows initially but I’ve seen those before and these just looked and behaved differently. I’m thinking Lark Sparrow?
