1. Yes, White-throated Sparrow

2 and 3. Song Sparrows

4. Hermit thrush

Agreed.

For #4 the rufous tail is a good ID mark for Hermit Thrush, along with the spotted breast and overall color pattern. There shouldn't be any juvenile Robins this time of year.

That's one bright Hermit Thrush. I wonder what subspecies it its.

Why isn’t it a Veery? I’ve seen some heavily marked ones before.

juvenile Robin

This is a juvenile American Robin. Juvenile plumage in most passerines is held for only a short period of time, generally measured in single-digit number of weeks. There should be no juvenile American Robins anywhere in the world right now.

It's, presumably, February. And the tail is contrastingly more orange than the upperparts and the head is browner than the lower back.

I think the photo has been edited to increase the saturation. The chromatic aberration is really bad, and none of the colors in the photo seem trustworthy.
