Dickcissel - Mike Ferrari

OK, so here are the Dickcissels from Sherwood Island today. From looking at my field guides here is my best guess on age and sex. The brighter bird is an adult female (weak brown malar, brownish nape etc) the immature i’m not sold on either way. My guess would be immature female but would be interested in other thoughts on either bird.
