Hello All,
Last year June(2021) I went on a birding trip to Colorado and found these birds. Need some help in identification of some of these birds.

1. Is this White-throated swift? Taken at Garden of Gods, Colorado Springs.

2. Is this a longspur and if yes what Kind of Longspur(both Mc.Cown's?) is this? Taken at Pawnee Grasslands, Denver


3. Is this the Grasshopper Sparrow? Taken at Pawnee Grasslands, Denver, Colorado.

4. Is this Western Wood-pewee? Picture taken at Staunton State Park, Colorado.

Thanks for confirming. I was looking at the Sibley's guide and found the name McCown's there. I probably should have looked at ebird once :) Thanks for confirming though.
