New Mexico is out of range for Purples.  The first shot appears to have a bit of a crest; I'm going with Cassin's.

EDIT: Are these all the same bird?  The second and third appear streakier underneath than the first one.  Could 1 be Cassin's, and 2 and 3 be House?

I think they're all House Finches -- the red is most pronounced on the forehead rather than the crown, and the primaries are quite short. Also, Purple's wander a lot -- New Mexico may be out of range, but not entirely out of the question.

I don't remember, the last two are the same bird, the first one was taken right before the other two, but I can't remember if it was the same one.
