Backyard Finches

A little help in confirming the ID of these backyard birds. We’re getting ready for the GBBC (Great Backyard Bird Count) on February 17 – 19. I have put an event post on this blog earlier and there is a link in the sidebar. Anyone from the IBO have a suggestion? Left-Click for a larger view. The ones with the reddish hint to their feathers is a House Finch. Thanks for your help.

American Goldfinch – winter plumage. (Thanks Robert. See comments.) The ones with the black and white wing stripes.

Notice the hint of yellow? Enlarge the photo and look close.
