I saw these two birds on the morning of 2017-01-02 at at Palo Alto Baylands Park in Palo Alto California. I assume the first is some kind of sparrow, but as usual I'm having difficulty narrowing down which kind. The second appears to some kind of goose or perhaps a large duck, but I again I haven't been able to identify it more specificially. Any help identifying them would be appreciated. TIA.
