Two female House Sparrows on the right, and a Field Sparrow on the left. This was taken in Ontario correct?

I think the two birds in the 5th picture are house finches...but seriously wait for someone else, because I probably hold the record for posting house finch pictures thinking they are something else! :)
What I have learned so far.... just because you think that bird is just another _____ (house sparrow, chickadee, crow or whatever you are used to seeing) look a little closer... you just might be surprised!

I agree with BarnSwallow on the hawk -- the patagial bars make this a Red-tail. #6 looks like a Northern Rough-winged Swallow, probably an adult, since there's no obvious wingbars.
