Sparrow - Central Texas

Having trouble with this sparrow ID. Could it be a Lincoln's? Photo taken in our garden, but we are surrounded by ranch land in the country.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for your comments. I’m waiting on word from the guide we had on our trip, as he wasn't with us that day, but I think it is a good idea to go with Sporophila sp when I upload my list to eBird.

Raptor, central Texas

The raptor was flying (actually gliding along) very high and heading south. These were the best shots we got with a 400mm lens.

I'm thinking it may be one of the falcon species.
