A couple of new birds....?

They were not new birds for me but then I found a couple of other birds...and I believe they are Red-necked Phalaropes. Needle like bill, dark eye mark, streaked grey on back.
Then on the way home, found (I believe) a Dickcissle on a power line and then he jumped down to fence. Nice to live in the country and be able to stop on the road to photograph a new bird.
Let me know what you think...thanks

You're right on the Dickcissel. Where is your 'honey hole' located? If it's near Holliday, a Red-necked would be rare. I think your birds might be Wilson's in an in between plumage. The legs appear too long for Red-necked.
