Sparrow ID Central Texas

At first I thought this was a Lincoln's but now I'm not sure. Please help ID.
Thanks.

Not a Lincoln's. It's a Song Sparrow. Lincoln's Sparrow would have much finer streaking, buffy color on breast and face, smaller bill, among other things.

Thanks. I always have trouble with the differences between Lincoln's, Savannah, and Song Sparrows.
