Real world challenge.  These pics DO show enough to ID this sparrow:

Here a sparrow w/ochre face shown only by Ammodramus  
Henslow's would show olive 
ochre/white median crown stripe
Nelson's would show grey
grey nape w/purple streaks, weak malar stripe; streaked flanks  
Baird's would show buff/dark streaked nape and obvious malar stripe 
Grasshopper would show unmarked flanks

Sparrow is a LeConte's.  Visit Al Smith's site for some good LeConte's pics.
