A Crested-crowned Bird

Here’s the 4th image in my young bird series, all taken Aug. 11, 2015, at Ridgefield, Wa.  The bill says sparrow and the crested-crown makes me think Lincoln’s Sparrow, which is supported by the beginnings of the streak behind the eye and also on the cheek, as well as a nice eye ring.  The bird is a female immature Lincoln’s Sparrow, although I’m less sure about its gender.  [Guessing female due to the light overall color].  I’ve never seen a Lincoln’s Sparrow, adult or otherwise, at the specific location where I shot this, but that means little.  Please let me know if I missed the boat on this ID!

Canon 7D Mark II, 1/1000, f4.5, ISO 320, 500mm, 7:45 a.m.
