#2 Yellow Warbler?
#3 & 4, not sure
#5, Woodpecker of some description

#5 looks like a male Downy Woodpecker. It is hard to tell size so it could also be a Hairy Woodpecker.

I'm going to go out on a limb here (pun intended) and say that woodpecker is a downy woodpecker. 3 and 4? Haven't a clue but it sure is singing it's little heart out. :)

edit: Clip beat me to it. LOL

I agree with your IDs, but I'll pass on the woodpecker.
3 and 4 are a type of flycatcher. I'm getting a "Traill's" vibe. It's obviously singing, do you recall the song? Vocalization is the best way to distinguish between Alder and Willow (or any Empid for that matter).

Pretty sure your woodpecker is a male Downy, based on behavior. You don't usually see Hairys on such small, brushy vegetation (they seem to prefer large trunks). By no means is that diagnostic, but I think its the best guess we can get given the photo.

Unfortunatley not, I've added a few more non singing photo's of the little mite, I'm leaning towards an Alder Flycatcher, if it helps the tree it was singing from was right up against a shoreline.
