Sparrow in Central Texas, US

I cannot seem to find the right image to decipher what type of sparrow this is. Sorry about the poor focus and distance, best I could get. There was a small flock of them (4 to 8) in a wetland area in central Texas on 9-30-2013. Thanks in advance!

This rather looks like a female Indigo Bunting to me (but I am no expert).
