Jamie,

The bird you had at Bloomfield is a fairly "bog-standard" princeps - Ipswich 
Sparrow - pale plumage overall, stout pink bill, rather poorly contrasting 
facial pattern, grey mantle and underparts that have warm brown streaks (not 
blackish) are the most obviuous features from a typical Savannah Sparrow.

No need to wrestle too much with it...have a drink, tick it and enjoy it!

Best,

Julian
