American Tree Sparrow VS Chipping Sparrow .. N. Indiana

I would like confirmation that the more closeup photo is that of an American Tree Sparrow and the other a Chipping Sparrow since their differences are so subtle. Both photos were taken within the past week or two in Northern Indiana USA.Click image for larger version

I'm afraid both are Chipping Sparrows. American Tree Sparrow has brown eye lines instead of black, and yellow lower mandible, among other things.
