California, Bay Area - song sparrow?

Bear with me... I am trying to learn how to identify sparrows.
This was seen in Bay Area marshes (Palo Alto Baylands).
I think it's a song sparrow, Adult California Coast (on Sibley).
Am I right? Thanks!

There are actually four subspecies of Song Sparrow that breed around San Francisco Bay. They all look pretty similar. In the Palo Alto baylands this would be Melospiza melodia pusillula.
