Either that one or Nutting's. Suspect Brown-crested but since they both look so similar, without more views and/or hearing it, I don't feel comfortable giving a positive ID.

The Mountain-gem depends on where it was seen but likely White-throated. The other is a female Volcano based on the white tip and amount of black in the tail.

First does look more like a female Blue Grosbeak. Blue-black would be more reddish-brown and with a larger, dark bill.
The other is yes, a male Thick-billed Seed-Finch.
