What type of sparrow is this? - Alberta, Canada (1 Viewer)

Hi, I just joined this forum and was wondering if anyone could help me identify this sparrow. He was hanging out underneath my feeder in the garden and I managed to take a few (low quality) pictures of him. I'm thinking maybe a Lincoln's Sparrow? I live near Edmonton, Alberta. He's got thin streaking and a central spot over a buffy-yellow wash, a brown crown and eyeline, and a buffy malar stripe with a white throat. He's lighter and less chocolate-brown than a song sparrow with finer streaking. Let me know what you think.
