Help with some small brown birds in Nevada. (Poor quality photos)

Recommended Posts

Both birds were seen in the morning at a soccer field near Las Vegas, Nevada. I took some very poor quality images through my binoculars. 

1. The first bird was small and brown had a prominent black bib as well as some black face markings that I could not get a good view of. From review of the poor quality photos afterwards it seems to match the black bib and face marks of a Horned lark. Can this be confirmed with such poor quality photos?

2. The second bird was seen a hundred feet away from the first bird and was with a similar looking partner.  It was also small but slightly lighter brown than the first bird and without any black markings. From the photo I managed to take through my binoculars the most notable feature was that its back feathers had more contrast with lighter and darker areas giving it a more "spotted?" appearance.
