#3 could be a Swamp Sparrow in formative plumage; this bird doesn't have the clearly defined whitish throat that White-throated typically shows.

White-throated and Swamp can be tough to separate sometimes, but that would be an unusually long tail for a Swamp Sparrow. Was the photo taken in a wetland or near water?
