On your house finch, depends on how large he is. The beak color makes me think starling (but I am definitely not an expert).

The reason I thought house finch is because of a bird nearby which was apparently calling to the fledgeling and to whom the fledgeling did fly when I got too close. Also, you can see hints of that particular red around his beak and eye.

I just compared the fledgeling to the pic I took of the adult house finch http://www.fotolog.net/teragram/?photo_id=62021

and... well I can't tell about the beak. The two birds' heads are at different angles. The shape seems about right though.

I too would love to hear from "the experts".
