Are these both the same bird? The first one looks like a female Purple Finch but the second is a Lark Sparrow.

Although the primaries are long, but I would of like a clear pic.
The bill is chubby, which is more of Purple field mark. and the streaking on the flank is more purple like, So i would go with Purple here
