Snog Sparrow? Please help with ID

I got these last week. I was in the bushes with full camo these guys came right up to me didn't even know I was there. I just sat still.

At first I was thinking it was a fox sparrow or a snog sparrow but there a lot of little bird that look like this. I got my field guide book out but to hard to tell. Maybe one of you guys could help me out with the ID. Thanks Mark.

It looks like it is a song sparrow. Check out the website below it's where I go for all my bird info.

The bird guide allows you to search a by name.

I've always been crazy, but it keeps me from going insane.

Look at the talons on that second bird. Would hate to be attacked by him! LOL

No problem. I always wish I had my camera on stand when they land so close. Nice pics!
