Some birds for ID - Minnesota, USA

My american friend took these pics yesterday. Please help him to ID them.
His message:
"Yesterday, in 4 pm Minnesota fog:
The guy in 3203 & 3205 is the size of a mourning dove but I doubt that's what it is.
The one in 3192 looks like a dark-eyed junco to me."

The first two look like a Mourning Dove. Not sure what else they would be. I'd agree with Dark-eyed Junco. I think the final one is an American Goldfinch.
