Looks like a blue bird, and a yellow finch, to me. We have them both.

I agree with Jerry on the first one and Terry on the second one. How's that for compromise? But, really, I do agree with y'all about each of those.

I am definitely not sure about the blue one. But I know the other is a yellow finch.

First one is an indigo bunting and the second one is a goldfinch.

When did you take the photo? If a month or two ago, it may be a male. If it was very recently taken, it is not a mature male. Mature male Goldfinches this time of the season are bright yellow.

There ain't enough meat on them. Would take about fifty to make a mess.
