bird ID help

vancouver, Canada

I was down in California in January and saw these birds near Santa Monica. I'm having trouble identifying them. The first one seems finch like and the second one is a flycatcher? Thanks in advance

Pretty sure the first is a California Towhee--

Yep, a California Towhee for #1; and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher for #2
