Filling Holes in Exterior Brick

I have a few holes that aren't filled in my exterior brick, likely from old utility mounting hardware. What can I fill these with? Is there a brick-colored cement I can mix up and fill with or should I just let my house ooze silicone? I haven't used a dowel or anything to check the depth. hopefully the holes are shallow. As always, your help is appreciated.

Clear silicone would be the easiest fix. You can buy different colors of caulk but it would probably show. An expert could probably mix up some tinted mortar close to the brick color - don't know that I could.

Look in the tile section of a big box store and see if there is a color of sanded grout close to your brick. Lighter is more obvious than darker on this type repair. Mix it up, poke it in.
