"My" House Finches are OK. She should call ODFW and see if they will take one of the dead birds for testing.
And, just in case it is salmonella, she should take down all feeders and water features and clean with a weak bleach solution and hold off on feeding for a while. Some diseases around feeders are contagious, rampant among siskins and finches especially. Details here.
I hope she figures it out and gets things fixed. Judy, <jmeredit...>
