Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada: Finch or Sparrow?

I think this is just a song sparrow. Seen in Dartmouth NS, Canada near a lake. It's about the right size for a sparrow but the beak shape, color of the head, and the extent of the pattern have my nephew skeptical. What do you folks think?

Wow! I had no idea. There was a male red-winged blackbird in the area as well. Thank you!
