There are actually four subspecies of Song Sparrow that breed around San Francisco Bay. They all look pretty similar. In the Palo Alto baylands this would be Melospiza melodia pusillula.

I really don't know what this is, but Townsend's Warbler should always have some black streaks on the flanks and some yellow below. The nearest I can come is an immature Cerulean Warbler, though that...

Not sure any of these are Clay-colored. All look like Brewer's based on the weak face patterns and malar stripes.

I agree this sounds like a Wilson's Warbler. I have just spent the last week in the Colorado mountains and that was one of the most common birds I saw.

It is a cool sounding bird, but if you are doing sound for a film set in Brazil you might want to choose something else; Eastern Whip-poor-will does not occur there.

Try doing a Google image search for "bald cardinal" and see if the pictures don't look like your bird.

And note that juveniles have a dark gray-brown back and may outnumber adults at this time of year.

I am puzzled too. They look ok for Tree Swallows, except that at least some of them should be showing forked tails. If there are hundreds together I think it is unlikely they are Eastern Kingbirds,...

I think it is not bright enough for a Great Crested Flycatcher. Brown-crested is perhaps a possibility, but the bill is on the small side for that species. I would say Ash-throated.
