House sparrow or Russet Sparoow?

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aT...z5U7aRv5VxMxYv

There is an unknown sparrow among the Eurasian Tree Sparrow. The bird was found in Hong Kong.

Some background information:
Three species recorded in Hong Kong (Eurasian Tree Sparrow, Russet Sparrow, House Sparrow).
Tree is the commonest, and then Russet, lastly house is the rarest.

Is this a juvenile male House Sparrow? Note the pattern at the breast and greyish cap.

Thanks a lot.
