I can confirm the Seaside Sparrow, all others are tough but I think someone else will ID them correctly.

2. Common Nighthawk? (Leaning towards Common not Lesser as the pale bar on the primaries seems located below the tertials).
3. Seaside
4. Another Seaside? (Absent a distinct yellow supraloral, look at the size of the bill and overall coloring. Don't know what else it could be.)
