Newbie Question - Fox or Song Sparrow? (2 Viewers)

I'm very new to birding and snapped these grainy pictures of a bird eating seed below my house feeder. Based on my research I think it is a fox sparrow, but some pictures I see online make it seem like a song sparrow. Any way to know for sure? I live in Maryland if that helps. Thanks!
