Agree with Yellow Warbler for #1. Long yellow undertail coverts, black inner webs to flight feathers, yellow eyering. Agree with Anna's Hummingbird and Hairy Woodpecker for the other two.

Agree this is likely a Shy and not Salvin's. White-capped is another possibility, but Shy is more expected around Tasmania.
