Perhaps a Western Wood-Pewee and a female House Sparrow for the last one.

The first four are Eastern Phoebes - the primary projection is way too short for a Wood-Pewee, and the last is a Chipping Sparrow.

BTW, Western Wood-Pewees are not in Georgia.

Senior moment (I forgot about Georgia in the title and was looking at the OP's Texas address). Eastern Phoebe and juvenile Chipping Sparrow look good for these now!

Not sure why it makes any difference on whether the birds were in Georgia or Texas. Eastern Phoebe's and Chipping Sparrows are pretty common around my house in North Texas.

Basically, Gary, I just "messed up" by answering too quickly and not looking at the photos long enough or carefully enough!

Thank you to all!
I'm always thankful for even the initial mis-guesses, since I learn more through the ensuing explanations!
