I'm pretty sure #4 is a pair of House Sparrows (male & female) correct? The others, I'm not to sure about. Any help is greatly appreciated.

1. Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle subspecies.
2. White-crowned Sparrow, gorgeous.
3. Female Yellow-rumped Warbler, Myrtle Subspecies
4. House Sparrow, male and female
5. Red-tailed Hawk (dark patagium), Krider's subspecies! Really nice find for Ohio, I think. EDIT:. Oops, read your location wrong. Nice bird for Ontario as well, if it is a Krider's.

I'm actually in Ontario, Canada. That photo was taken Near London, Ontario, Canada. This attached shot I got in Port Hope, Ontario last Friday of a Red-tailed Hawk.

With that belly band, that first Red-tail is a pale borealis, but it's not a Kriders. It is a year-old bird, since the tail is barred brown and the primaries are paler than the secondaries. A Krider's would lack the belly band and wouldn't show the dark on the side of the head.

Agree with psweet. Based on the ABA description of the Krider's, this bird is either a pale borealis or an intergrade of some kind. Krider's can show some dark on the side of the head and malars, but combining it with the prominent patagials and strong belly band spoils the chance at a "pure" Krider's.
