Seen this sparrow on Campobello Island this afternoon.  Not sure if its just a savannah sparrow, or the ipswich.

Right off the bat, I'd say this is Ipswitch. Keep in mind that Ipswitch is a subspecies of Savannah Sparrow.

It was so light in colour. Blended in with the dead grass.  If it hadn't moved, I would of never seen it. I was only 20-30 feet away.

Lighter and chunkier/heavier than regular Savannah Sparrow. They tend to arrive earlier than the regular Savannah and head for their breeding grounds on Sable Island. We get to see them only during migration along the coastal areas of the Bay of Fundy.

You have 2 awesome images here, Susan!
