House Sparrow

Spotted these House Sparrows 6/4/12 in Gatlinburg, TN.

 Note the characteristic black bib above.... the bird below I believe to be a House Sparrow, however, it's lacking the black beard that you see in the photos above (at least, I can't see it in the photos - I couldn't get a head-on shot). The juveniles don't have the black bibs as well defined, so this could be a juvenile House Sparrow. I couldn't find anything else that had similar markings, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to comment - I love hearing from you. If you can help me out with identifying any of these mystery birds or correct any mistakes I've made in identifying the others, I would so appreciate it! Happy Birding!
