Hello, OBOL

Can anyone please offer an identification for this sparrow? I found it
along the Clackamas River today. I was thinking it might be a Spizella of
some sort, but I can't find any images that really match this bird well. I
also thought it might be a Lincoln's Sparrow, but I didn't see any silver
above the eye, which always stands out to me on a Lincoln's Sparrow. Maybe
it's an off looking or juvenile Savannah Sparrow?

You can see four pictures of the bird here:

Thanks for your help,
