New Mexico birds?

I took these pictures back in 1996 I believe. the conversion from slides to digital is awful but I hope there is enough here for ID. What do you think?

1.) Pinyon Jay
2.) good question. From dullness, and wide tips to primaries, would say it is quite possibly a Black-chinned Hummingbird
3.) Lark Sparrow
4.) Another good question. Not a great picture, but could be another Black-chinned. Don't think I can tell from this picture--more would be even more speculation on my part.
