Probably taken in August or so while the bird was molting - hence the odd color pattern and ratty pointy looking tail.

Female House Sparrow, with that very large pink bill.
A friend sent this to me for an ID and I am stumped. At first I thought maybe a Vesper Sparrow because of the light patch on the shoulder, but at closer inspection it looks like that is rally on the bird’s back and that the pattern continues across the back. Another birder friend suggested Grasshopper Sparrow.
Any thoughts appreciated,
