I don't know why only the first image shows up. Try clicking on the sign that says posted image and see if you can see the image like that, otherwise I will post it again tomorrow night.

Oh, that's interesting about the pics. Must be because I'm at my cottage and have a slow internet connection.

I agree on the Shovelers, and I don't think the Merganser is hooded? Looks more like Red-breasted to me (I don't know about the range into Canada though).

Life List: 275 species
Latest Birds: Mountain quail, rock wren, Costa's hummingbird

2 and 3 are Hooded Mergansers.
On a Red-breasted, the bill would be longer proportionally to the head.

1. Confirmed
4. Confirmed
5. Agree with Shovelers
6. Confirmed
7. Agree, Eastern Phoebe
8-9. Barn Swallow.
10. Chipping Sparrow
