Canada - Near Edmonton, uncommon sparrow confusion (1 Viewer)

Hello,
I photographed this sparrow in an agricultural area, south of edmonton.
In the field it seemed a bit unusual for a Savannah sparrow, which is commonly seen here. Now, looking at this photo I am sure it can only be either a Baird's Sparrow, or a LeConte's Sparrow, but either would be an unusual sighting. I wonder if anyone can confirm which of these two types of sparrow this appears to be? thanks.
