The top pic is from the March/ April 1971 "Foreign Birds" magazine, the organ of The Foreign Bird League (UK)

The plate was painted specially for FBL by Robin L Restall, renowned amateur ornithologist, aviculturist, artist, and author who studied, and kept finches, and other avian species, in many countries of the world
