  1. Female/immature male House Finch - note the brown overall, coarse, blurry streaking on the belly, and conical bill.
  2. Male Ruby-crowned Kinglet - note the tiny bill, white eyering, and black bar under a white wingbar. You can even see the usually concealed red crown!

There is no need to for indecision on the sex of the finch -- it is a female. While both Cassin's and Purple finches exhibit delayed plumage maturation, House Finch does not. Given that it is October -- female.
