Default Young house sparrow?

I believe the first two is a young house sparrow and the second a female house finch. ID confirmation appreciated.

I'd agree with the house sparrow but would have to check properly with the finch, although on 1st glance on my phone I'd agree with you.

Thanks for the comments all. I have been watching primarily young house finches of late and it just didn't look "finch" to me.

I have changed the ID on the last bird to a female brown headed cowbird.

I would agree with Bill on Brown-headed Cowbird. The house finch would have more of a curved upper mandible and slightly stronger wing bars.
