Saw this little guy in a marshy area at the edge of a lake in southern NH - thinking young Song Sparrow.

Very red in the plumage on the back, which points towards Swamp, but from general appearance I would probably say Song. A lot of these juvie sparrows can be really tricky, even for sparrow nerds like me.

Thanks to both of you - those were the two choices. Sparrows are tough indeed.

I'm going to go back to just labeling them all LBJs!
