I think the wren is a Bewick's?
I don't know if the two photos are of the same sparrow or not.

These and the next few images I will post were taken over the weekend near Gonzales, TX (between San Antonio and Houston)

Any help is most appreciated.

Thanks, Resin. I can't find anything in my books like the markings on top of that sparrow's head.

Thank you! I will look at more Song Sparrows on-line and see if I can see the resemblance. I appreciate the help.
