Ammospiza sp.

Frustrating! Small secretive sparrow. Def. smaller then SASP, Hard to get good looks, hid in bayberry bush running around base in sand. One quick look through my bins I observed orange/yellow facial pattern that is consistent with STSP & NESP, good possibility it could have been a GRSP though. Did not see supercilium & could not get a picture.
