House Wren? Eastern Ontario, Canada (1 Viewer)

Shot this morning in eastern Ontario, Canada, I think this is a house wren, but not at all certain of that. Can someone confirm or correct that ID?

Suggest sedge wren. House wren ought to be darker and more uniform I think. We wouldn't expect such pale under parts and a dark contrasting crown. I note also evidence of barring in the wings and tail. This is a young bird as shown by the yellowish gape

House Wren has bars on wing and tail. But it doesn't have buff tones on the underparts. This does look like a Sedge Wren.

To me, better for a Marsh Wren. Plain unstreaked cap, median and lesser coverts unbarred, wider barring on tail.

I would say marsh wren...my first thought. Look at the habitat as they appear to be reeds etc....
