Not sure on the gull and tern, but the rest look good, except the last is a female red-winged blackbird. The sparrow looks like a song, but not sure about that.
I'd say with the exception of the last one, you got all of them. Both sparrows look like Songs.
Thanks, both of you. The last shot was backlit so I brought out the shadows in post-processing, When I say the rust-orange color that reminded me of the Varied Thrush and threw me off. Is that a normal color for Redwing Blackbird females or is it an artifact of the under exposure?

I think that color is actually typical for birds with fresh plumage.
Got it. You folks are a veritable fount of information and it really helps in the learning process, so thank you!
