Bird with Bright Orange Beak

Hello everyone I am new to this forum and new to Texas. This morning I saw a bird about the size of a Cardinal, the beak was bright orange, the tail long and had orange highlights. The overall color of the bird was light brown but the highlights made this bird very interesting. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Steve,

Could it be a female Cardinal?
