Clovis NM USA February Sparrow ID

Was going through some old photos looking for something else and saw these two pictures from Clovis, New Mexico. Taken in February 2010.

Could these be some non-breeding male Lark Buntings?

Terrible pictures, which is why I didn't notice them before.

I think I see the big blue beaks, the black on the face, and the white streak on the wings.

Would be an accidental lifer.

Thanks.
