This bird looks great for a Swamp Sparrow to me. Nice find!
In this checklist https://ebird.org/checklist/S82749997
I included two photos of a sparrow I have called Lincoln's sparrow. It could be mistaken for a swamp sparrow given that Sibley says the two as immatures are nearly indistinguishable from one another. The other option I considered and rejected was white-throated sparrow. I'm seeking opinions. Offline responses are welcome.
