I agree on #1 and #3. Both 2 and 4 are Empidonax. Although I'm not comfortable going for #2, I think #4 looks like Willow/Alder Flycatcher.

Neither one is a Serin or finch of any kind.

#2 is a Yellowhammer for sure, and I think #1 is as well.

Well, I saw a good number of sapsucker wells on an ornamental Bradford Pear in the yard yesterday, which I don't remember seeing before.

Both are definitely Swainson's Hawks.
