    ^ It *could* be a House Finch. Hard to tell from that angle.
    Nice shots though; I especially like #2 where you can see its back and it's got nice light on the head.

    Sparrows are confusing anyway, but yeah--female House Sparrows and female House Finches, how in the heck are you supposed to be able to tell them apart?!?

    I think #1 is a female blue grosbeak. Nice shots regardless
