Yeah, they would, if I were a little more competent at bird IDs.

I'm really sorry, everyone-- the more I look at this photo the more I 
think I was very likely wrong.  I was so focused on one very distinct 
marking from the face that I wasn't taking the rest of the bird into 
account.  I've got a lot of photos I'm going through from the week, 
and I'll post them later today and y'all can judge for yourselves.  I 
also have one other mystery sparrow that I could use some help with 
('cause at this point, I'm sure not gonna guess :-) ) and I'll 
explain that one when I post, too.
