Hi Charlotte - my best guess would be Brewer’s Sparrow, but the location seems off to me, and visually it’s not a perfect match. That dark vertical bar on the wing doesn't look very Brewerish, at least I couldn't find it in photos of Brewer's online.
Anyway, not at all an expert, but it's fun to director 🙂.

When I say little, it was smaller than the juvenile Dark-eyed Juncos feeding near it. I certainly have Song Sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows nesting in the area, but the pictures I can find on the internet don’t match baby SOSP or WCSP either. So I created a little Flickr album with 4 photos showing this bird on the right and left sides, a view with the breast (very little streaking), and the top of the head. I’m hoping with all the expertise among you, that someone will recognize which sparrow this is.
