Great! These are purple finches, [males] with the females.
It looks like you're a bit ahead of the season, nothing has leafed out yet here.
What shrub or tree is this?

Great photo! I can't seem to get a clear shot of one down here, but I'm really not sure if we have house finches or purple finches.

We always call them red-headed sparrows...;)

I think those are purple finches. House finches do not have that much color topside.
