With the rufous on the tail and the thin eye-ring, I would say Hermit Thrush for both.

To me, these look like Hermit Thrushes and they also look like the bird in an earlier post you made.  The photo was hard for me to ID and I thought House Wren but the colors were wrong.

Big Oly: I thank you for all the feed back. This last post has two birds in it, the first was taken from near my home, near Lake Michigan a couple of months back. the second was taken about 20 mile north of las vegas, the earlier bird you are referring to was taken near the photo you are referring to but about 1000 ft higher elevation. I guess they could have been the same bird but I did not think they were even related,,,,but maybe

I should say, same type of bird.  I spent some time trying to do the bird justice.  That other post, the color and beak combo really bugged me.  I think all the I.D.s are correct now.

Thank you OP for not deleting your photos this time, for many of us seeing the photos and comments is the primary way that we learn how to identify birds.

Noble, thanks for the feedback. I used to keep the photos up for a bit but it seems that What bird has been crunching on the amount of space one can have on the website at one time. It only allows me to have maybe three pics at a time on the site. I will try to be more patient with my own needs to know what my photos are in the future.

This might help...I'm quoting @jhauser42: "There is very limited storage space here and as you post photos it gets used up quickly.  Eventually everyone has to switch to using a photo hosting site like Flickr, Imgut or Photobucket.  When hosting at one of these just put the link to the IMG or BBCODE (whichever the site calls it) directly in your post and the photo will appear there."

There are other sites, too. I personally use Smugmug. It's not free but, when I was getting started, Flickr was having issues.

If you give it a try and have trouble, someone here should be able to assist.
