Hi Bruce. Is this a female Brown-headed Cowbird?

I didn't see the other photo - Common Redpoll and Pine Siskin?

Great blog - I linked to it from mine.

Ok Bruce: I'll bite.Photo No 2 are Pine Siskins. However the second species in the first photo has me stumped.
It's smaller than the Starling, so this puts it about a 5" -6" bird. It perches like a Sparrow and has the overall feel of a Sparrow. The bill is Sparrow, Junco like, so....I guess it's an LBJ
