These are all Siskins.

These are all Siskins. Redpolls have a black chin and never show green or yellow. Greenfinches are much less streaky, and have a much heavier bill.

Sex

Female in the first picture, but probably two males in the second picture (though a bit 'fuzzy'!), as they look very yellow and the visible rump is very bright.
