This may sound strange to the more advanced birders here, but I am stumped....

On my way home today, I stopped at the field on Upper Grassy Hill Road here in Woodbury...

I saw what I think were 4 song sparrows in the bushes/shrubs along the road - streaked breasts with a central spot - but their cheek/malar areas had a yellowish-green appearance - never seen that before in song sparrows?

Were they song sparrows??
