Female red-winged blackbird?

Most of the female red-winged blackbirds I've seen have had streaking of some kind. This bird hopped in front of me for a couple of seconds. I honestly don't know what else it could be.

It's a female Brown-headed Cowbird. The over all plain brown color and the cone shaped bill are distinctive. Female Red-wings would be streaked.
