Vesper Sparrow

I did a previous post on the vesper sparrow with several poor photos of one bird. I was excited because it was a new species to me. I have subsequently photographed two more and I am excited to have a little bit more knowledge about it and better photos. 
What really makes it stand out, at least from similar birds I've seen, is a white ring around the eye. The next photo also illustrates another identifying characteristic, a chestnut shoulder-patch. 

These two birds were both seen in the wash in Live Oak Canyon.
