    Great Horned can appear rather light at times, depending on the individual, age and conditions.

    Welcome to Whatbird, Lookingforabird. Size is notoriously hard to judge in the field. Most birds are full grown, the same size as adults, when they leave the nest. Calling a bird a juvenile just by it's size doesn't usually work. In fact, some juvenile birds can actually be bigger than their parents because the parents tend to feed their babies better than they feed themselves. It's easy to fall victim to the size issue, we've all done it, but size is really hard to gauge and not the best ID feature to use.

    1. looks like a young red-shouldered with that checkered wing pattern, streaked throat and no belly band 2. Abert's may be correct. I can see a rusty under-tail. Maybe a young bird with no black at the base of bill

    Common Yellowthroat is correct. Redstarts never have yellow throats and they're usually in the trees.

    The fourth toe and short somewhat thick bill = Semi. Also the “shoulders” show defined streaking. White- rumped wings extend past tail .

    either song thrush or mistle thrush, but would lean towards song thrush based on overall brownish color.

    Behavior wise, you should have seen the rump nervously move up and down, like a teeter totter.You can use this behavior to ID them from a long distance simply by their movements.

    If you're interested in learning gulls better I would suggest getting the new book "Gulls of the World". It's excellent.

    The birds in the recording sound like House Wrens.

    Juvenile Chipping Sparrow. Note the very pink beak, the dark line between the beak and the eye, and the indistinct malar and mustachial stripes.

    Definitely a Wren, and I'm thinking House Wren due to the weak supercillium and plain gray underside. Wait for more expert opinions, though.
