This bird was photographed 17March2009 at Gilbert Water Ranch, Gilbert, Az.

Is it a conical bill?

Is it a sparrow? ... maybe a bunting?

So the female can have that black bill.

Yes, House Sparrows' bills vary in color from light peach-yellow to solid black. Here is an example of a female with a mostly black bill.
