White-crowned Sparrow. Looks a mite odd with the yellow-toned belly, but I suspect that's a trick of the light.

We also thought White-crowned, but very rare for area, this time of year. Also think the yellow tones are coming from morning light bouncing off blacktop...
Thanks Resin

Agree it's odd for the time of year, perhaps a bird that was injured or sick at migration time and couldn't make the journey. I did a (fairly small) check for any potentially similar cagebirds, but couldn't find anything that matched.
