Pictures of Birds

I took these photos at my friend Barb's last weekend, as we were enjoying the hot tub after walking around the antique show for several hours (what a treat for sore muscles!).

Anybody know what these are?
Presumably some sort of sparrow
but the tufted head is throwing me off.
There was a red squirrel too. She came by to pick up the seeds the birds had dropped from the feeder.  From the look of her, I'm guessing there's a nest of babies somewhere nearby.

I'm off to the cottage for the long weekend, time to open it up for the summer - see you in a couple of days!

Hi Cynthia
Nice bird photos! The mystery birds are female Purple Finches.
