Three southeast Texas birds

I'd like confirmation of these three birds seen just northwest of Houston today.

My guesses:
1. Savannah Sparrow
2. White-throated Sparrow (at right; in front of Harris's)
3. Red-winged Blackbird.

Jealous - I am. Two birds in one photo that I really want on my life list, the Harris' and the White-throated.

Thanks for the confirmation, Andrew and Lisa.

White-throated are common here, Lisa. Harris's are much less common, but there are quite a few around this year.
