Agree with Lincoln's for the first two in the last set but is the third one a Song?

Overall appearance, heavy bill, long(ish) tail versus hint of buffiness and thin streaking.

I would probably have reported it as Song.

All the birds in the last set are Lincoln’s.

All of them are definitely Lincoln's.  Very thin breast streaking and very clean markings overall; weak malar stripe; buffy submustachial stripe; brown color not as rich as Song and there is a lot of blue-gray in the face, neck, and back.

All underparts streaking in Lincoln's is overlaid on buff; little to none is on Song. It's straightforward, and virtually absolute. While subtle, the peaked head shapes are different, with the peak on Song more centered over the eye, with Lincoln's behind the eye. Lincoln's is also, overall, a neater bird: crisper streaking, elegant.
