sparrow sp.

Had a small sparrow feeding on sides of gravel road at a distance that we could not put a name to: very light brown on back, grey areas on face and cheek, white from top corner of eye back to nape but just below that a dark stripe from directly behind eye but not all the way to back of head, light collar/side of throat, clear belly but striped head face and neck. It had a very undulating flight but that could have been due to windy conditions. Tried for photos, but moved so fast, only got one off that is very blurry as the bird sat in a divot. Lost bird when a truck pased towing a boat to launch.
