Are the first two photos purple finch? Thought it was a house finch at first but the reddish wings are throwing me off. Also, the last two photos are house finch, right? Just making sure.

They both look like HOFI for me. The first bird does seem pretty red, but I think I see streaks and a squared off tail. Hard to tell though

A few things make me think this is a purple finch. The streaks seem way too faint, as well as the wing bars. The bird also has a lot more red on it. The red extends farther down the chest as well as the wings.

I agree with Colton. The first bird is a Purple Finch while the second bird is a House Finch.
