5. Song sparrow? Bill looks heavy and bird is also bulky
6. Swamp sparrow?
7. Swamp sparrow?

Swamp for pics one and two. Unsure on 4 and wouldn't mind seeing another picture of five (song or Lincoln's) but others all Song Sparrow.

It's worth pointing out, I think, that the photos got posted in reverse order of their numbering. Going by the numbers on the photos, the birds are:

1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 5.jpg - Song Sparrow
4.jpg - Savannah Sparrow
6.jpg, 7.jpg - Swamp Sparrow
