Looking back at photos 1 and 2, I am beginning to think that the pink spot on photo 2 may be the uppertail, not undertail, coverts. In which case I think photos 1 and 2 are a Common Redpoll.

So 1 and 2 Common Redpoll

3 and 4 Song Sparrow

5 and 6 Purple Finch

7 Song Sparrow


For some reason I'm just not seeing Purple Finch for number 1 and 2.

I'm still seeing Purple Finch for 1 and 2. The rump is always the lightest part of the finch and the back looks too purple for the other rose finches. Someone else might have a different experience and some different information though. 

Agreed. Definitely looks like a Purple Finch.
