I did not see the white crown at the time but most of my views were looking up. I've attached a photo of the enlarged area of the crown. The original post had lower res photos to save space. The full res photo in my eBird submission (https://ebird.org/checklist/S73368032) doesn't allow you to zoom in. My first thought was spots of light as well but zooming in it doesn't seem so. I chased PLVI sounds around the campground that day so all photos were not necessarily the same bird.
