I saw this one at a wetland with lots of reeds yesterday. It looks like an emberiza species to me but I am not quite sure, because I've never seen it before. Maybe a female reed bunting? because I saw a male near there a few weeks ago.

Agree wit Deb!
Yes, you are right again. Good head pattern for a Reed Bunting with distinct whitish supercilium and broad blackish triangular malar stripe
