Agree: female Brown-headed Cowbird. I believe that the head, neck and breast of a male Brown-headed Cowbird also appears to the right of the female Cardinal in one photo.

I believe you have a female BROWN-HEADED COWBIRD in the company of Northern Cardindal and Red-winged Blackbirds.

Hi - We've not been able to find this bird in our guides. It tends to eat seeds on the ground. I've seen it once on a tree limb just sitting. 



Thanks in advance - Survive the snow and cold!
