I am going to take a guess at a couple. Mind you, I have an average of 75% wrong.
Edit: Pass on 1 and 3. - Guessing Ring-billed gull, because of the pattern of black at the end of the wings in flight.
2-Sparrow- Gray head, brown eyeline, streaked breast - Fox Sparrow (don't laugh, I try)
4-American Goldfinch
Edit: 5-pass I never get Hawks right, but here goes. Shortish tail, white spots on back, no white showing at tip of tail, -Red-tailed Hawk

I think you are right on the Ring-billed Gull. But I have no idea on the others. Thanks for your input!

I'm fine with the first two being ring-billed.
Sparrow doesnt look Fox to me. I'll guess Song.
Agree with Goldfinch and RT Hawk.

I apologize if I jinxed your post by guessing the birds identities. Hopefully, someone will still come along and give you more definite ID's. Seems we all were just guessing at the sparrow type bird, and I am fairly certain my "reasons" for the others can't be the best ways for you to tell.

-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.
