I think both are Bushtits. As Nutcraker says, the dark eye is a certain indicator for the second bird. The shape of the bill and the lack of any faint streaking or mottling on the breast make the...

In the last photo the three birds on the right all have a classic Lesser Scaup head. The bird on the left I think is impossible to identify from this angle.

It would help if you could post larger photos - it is hard to see details on these.

Looking at ebird, Barred Owl is more widespread in California than I had realized. This is not the odd sighting I imagined.

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.
