Bird quiz

I got a new to me camera earlier this year and immediately started photographing birds. Some shots turned out great, but of course there were plenty of questionable ones, too, so I'm putting the slightly more challenging ones here for you to test your skills on. I've disabled comments so everyone gets a fair shot at guessing.

Look for any visible field marks, including bill shape and body shape, and pay attention to where it is, what it's doing. Consider the lighting and don't assume coloration based on oddly lit photos.
