Vesper Sparrow?

I believe that I just saw a Vesper Sparrow in the backyard. He was hopping around on the ground with a few juncos but I scared him and he flew into some grapevine that we have and then he flew away. I'm almost positive that it was a vesper: long tail with white edges; distinctive face pattern and kind of a spiky hair-do. I really wish that I had snapped a photo but it happened so fast that I just tried to keep my eye on him and notice the markings. Has anyone else seen a vesper sparrow in the Portland, OR area? I'd love to have some conformation or some ideas. Thanks and have a great and productive birding day.
