I don't have enough experience with the species so this is just my guess but I'm wondering if this is a young white-throated with the glare off the bill making it seem pinker than it really is. Looks immature to me, and also looks white-throatish.

And the second one is not Lincoln's because why? Sorry, I need to brush up on my sparrow ID skills ?

Lack of buff on breast, no prominent thin streaking on breast, facial pattern is wrong, and most importantly, location. LISP don't breed at this location, it's a little too far south in WI.

The second bird is a juv. Clay-colored Sparrow.

Aha! Thank you. I guess lighting was throwing me off.
