Mystery Birds!

I took this yesterday in my backyard. Note the pink azaleas in the background. 
I took two bird photos recently that I have so far been unable to identify.  So I'm turning to my go-to site for such situations: whatbird.com. The fellow birders who patronize this website are always very helpful, accurate and quick too.

Photographed along a street last weekend in Asheville, N.C.




I will update this post as soon as I have correct identifications.

Here's the verdict. The dark one above is a European Starling, which I suspected.
The other one is a White-throated Sparrow.

Thank you whatbird.com people!  I had one identification and a second confirmation.
