Redpoll

Flank streaking is heavy, so looks more like Common than Arctic Redpoll, though they can be very similar.

Coues'

I did not think the bill looked that small, in fact, being a bit 'caked' at the top, I think. The flank streaking is heavy, too. On the basis of what is visible, without a view of the rump, mantle and so on, I think that flammea is more likely.
