Which Sparrow?

On feeder in Boulder, Colorado. Always come together, so seem to be a pair. I believe they’re Sparrows, but can’t figure out what kind.

I agree with Thibaud & Nutcracker that they are Pine Siskins.

Thanks folks; Pine Siskin it is. There is a faint trace of yellow on the wing which should have led me in that direction, but I was stuck on the Sparrow path...
