This was taken in early August in eastern Kansas. I suspected that it was a Grasshopper Sparrow when I took it, but the black stripe on the throat seems wrong for that. Any help is appreciated.

The nearest I see is a Le Conte's sparrow.

I considered that, but the bill seems too large. Le Conte's is a good match on several points, though. Thanks.

Never having seen one, I can't be 100% sure, but it has some of the characteristics of a Dickcissel.

That is absolutely a Dickcissel.

Thank you. I can see why you would make that call, especially with the yellow spot on the side of the throat (which is not visible in all of the shots I took), but I think not. We have Dickcissels up to our elbows all summer, so I am familiar with them. Although you can't see it in the first picture, here is another taken at the same time where you can see a white median stripe on the bird's head, whereas the Dickcissel's crown is solid gray. This bird also lacks the bright eyeline of a Dickcissel. I have uploaded a Dikcissel pic for comparison
