Hello Debbie,

Chunky, mostly yellow bill is visible/judgeable in all three of your birds.
As said, a quite good feature against Cirl Bunting. This has smaller bill with dark upper and paler, mainly greyish lower mandible (and all dark bill in most juveniles).
More, everything else also fits Corn Bunting.

edit: added an e, important to me!
