1. Lincoln's Sparrow - Nothing else has that crisp black on brown chest pattern.

2. Possibly Bay-breasted, but total lack of any eye stripe is unusual. I'd vote Chestnut-sided Warbler. - c.f. Peterson Warblers first fall Chestnut-sided Warbler p. 239

2 is definitely Bay-breasted. 3 is a Parula. Pass on 4, although Blackpoll is a possibility.

Any possibility of #4 being a Flycatcher? I’m 50/50 between a Flycatcher and Blackpool. Would Yellow Belly Flycatcher be in your Range?

You're looking at the bill from below, so if it were a flycatcher it would look distinctly broader than this.

Vireos do not have yellow toes (their legs are entirely blue-ish) and also lack tail spots.  I think that Ruby-crowned Kinglet is a reasonable possibility for #4, considering the very thin and quite short bill (and overall coloration).
