1. Hermit Thrush. Looks how dark the breast spots are.

2. Lesser Goldfinch, note the large black cap, and the shape of yellow on the breast, among other features. 

Agreed and American would be in winter plumage now so for sure green backed lesser

I can't see the change in color from the back to the tail as would be expected for a Hermit. But it might be the lighting. Maybe gray-cheeked? Do they have those in CA?

 

We are not supposed to have them here. I am pretty sure they would be way out of range...

Ok thanks! The Lesser Goldfinch was in a different Plumage then before which I was confused about. Thanks! 🙂
