I see this bird daily and I thought at first glance it was a female cardinal. The more I see it, I'm not sure. Can you help?

Sherry, I'm not a Cardinal expert, as they don't reside in my neck of the woods. However that beak makes me think rather than a female Cardinal, it might be a female Pyrrhuloxia, which is a type of cardinal found in Texas. Hopefully our readers can help. Great photo. Happy birding.
