The brownish (or at least the less red/purple area) below/behind the eye is seen in the House Finch.

I think.
:p

House Finch because the beak has a "roman" nose appearance to it compared to the Purple Finches straight edged beak. Another lesser trait that you can look at is plumage, but I tend to like to look at shape of the body first because their is a lesser chance that it will change. Plumage can vary from bird to bird and color in the finches is based mainly on diet.

The Goldfinch looks sharp but overexposed. The chickadee looks overexposed also. Where these possibly taken through a window? They kind of have that look to them, especially the chickadee. The House Finch looks like the focus was on the thistle behind it.

The Robin looks perfect to me. Congrats on getting your lens back :)
