House Sparrow? & Unknown Sparrow/Thrush, Edmonds, WA US

So used to seeing the ubiquitous song sparrow around here that I'm dying to see something different. I believe the one is a house sparrow. Close to what I'm seeing in NatGeo and Sibley's. But what is the other?

Yes, House Sparrow (male) and female Red-winged Blackbird. (not a sparrow, but often mistaken for one!)

Thank you, Peter. Never would've guessed on the blackbird, but you're absolutely right. Always amazes me how different male and females can be!
