In our finches, incubation period is about 14 days, then nestling period is
about 21 days, then another couple weeks of dy period. "a month or two
apart" could easily fit that (at least chronologically) or could easily be
more than one breeding pair.

In this very good season, Red-browed Finches have bred at least four times
since mid-spring in the Ginninderra Creek  grasses and reeds in Gungahlin
behind my place.  Of course, I cannot say whether any pairs have bred more
than once but it has been a very good season here. A least four sets of your
have been brought to my bird feeder a month or two apart, including today.
