The drab bird in the back ground and the reddish one in front are House Finches (Haemorhous mexicanus). This spotting is for the yellowish bird on the left in the first shot and the right in the second. The beak looks more slender than sparrows or finches. Three colour variants of House Finches and this unidentified bird were bathing together with absolutely no squabbles. Two species have been placed in one spotting because this is meant to show interaction.
The Hotel in Guadalajara, Mexico, where I stayed had lovely grounds and covered corridors. Secluded niches too. This place had a sort of what once may have been a bird bath but now there were plants growing out of it...but there must have been some water at the bottom because the birds really enjoyed their baths. I hid behind a pillar in the corridor and took the shots. Third photo shows the area.
The yellow bird differs from the yellow variant of House finches.https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/848408877
