This is a cute picture. :) I am wondering if they are House Finches. They look more finch than sparrow. My inlaws consistently have a pair of House finches that nest in one of their wreaths every year. The American Tree Sparrows breed further north and make their nests on or near the ground.

Yep, House Finches! I'll recategorise the photo in a day or two.
