Bird one is might be a Brown Creeper, they make calls like that, its very similar in tone to the first note of their song, or maybe a young chickadee, some responded when I was listening to your call

Bird #2 is a Sparrow, probably a Song

The third bird sounds better for a robin than a Tanger, short with no real sharp notes in it

Bird #4 I'm not going to try to ID, fledgling calls are hard for me

Thanks for the reply

I don’t think bird one is a Brown Creeper I’ve heard their songs and they don’t make that dadadoop (Bubbly sound? Idk) that I heard in the video. There were two young Mountain Chickadees around but I’ve never heard them make those noises either. 

Bird #2 does have a Song Sparrow in the middle of the video but I’m looking at the song from 2 seconds in and then again at 11 seconds. 

For bird #3 I can see it being a robin. I can never tell Robins, Vireos or Tanagers apart by voice!

Bird #4 I meant to say that there’s fledgling Ravens making noise over the bird that I think is a house wren. It sings at 2 seconds, 7 seconds, 13 seconds, and  17 seconds.

Any other ideas?

Still pretty convinced that Bird #4 is a House Wren, but can’t seem to match the songs of bird 1 & 2. I’ve gone through the eBird checklists around the area and listened to the songs but nothing seems to match up.

The main bird in the second recording sounds like an American Goldfinch to me.  In #3 you have an American Robin AND a vireo (not sure which).  House Wren is correct for #4.  I don't recognize the song in #1.

Thanks for the reply!

I can’t really hear American Goldfinch in the second video? 
For #3 it goes Vireo, Robin, Vireo right? I’m assuming it must be a Red-eyed as I’ve only ever seen Red-eyed and Warbling here. 
#4 Ah good, I can add House wren as bird #102 to the location! I should know their song by now, as one lives in my yard and sings every 20 minutes! 😅 Just haven’t seen one there before.

Song one is puzzling me as well. Sounds like a mash up of 50 different things. Literally went through every reported bird species for BC on eBird, and still can’t find it. Closest I got was Lesser goldfinch + Bobolink + Warbling Vireo (Which doesn’t make Sense). Originally I thought it was a Catbird, but the two that have been hanging around there never made those noises.
