I agree with Falcon, except I get more a Brewer's Sparrow feel for 5.

Thank you

Thanks for the ID help.

I'm with you both on nos. 1-4.

I'm not sure about no.5 but it certainly didn't look like a Chipping.

I agree with 1-4.
Number 5 I cant say- might be another Vesper

Number five is a bit nasty. My first impression was Savannah Sparrow, but Vesper seems to be a better fit. I'm not quite sure.
