1: Looks like a Swamp Sparrow with those buffy, unstreaked sides.

2: Correct 

3:Looks like a young Chipping Sparrow

4: Vesper Sparrow with that big white eye ring and russet wing patch.

5: I think you are correct.

Edit: Didn’t see you change your id to vesper in time!

Why isn't #5 a Field Sparrow?  I agree with the rest.

I think the streaking in the crown, and lack of an obvious white eye ring. But I don’t have much experience with CCSP, I could be wrong.

Edit: I am confused by #5, I’ll leave it to the experts haha.
