I took these recently and would like some help with the IDs. I'm pretty sure the first is a goldfinch.

Ladyhawk, not sure of the first bird but, the second bird looks like it's a mockingbird.

The first one is a male American Goldfinch in breeding plumage. Nice photos.

I've seen White Mockingbirds.

Among the common songbirds they seem to be the most variable in color and even shape. This is NOT a Juvenile, merely an add colored Mockingbird - Good capture!
