Pass on the second bird. 
The first bird, I think that Alaskan Song Sparrows are darker, maybe a juvenile Song Sparrow? I can’t really think of anything else. 

That might be it--doesn't the bill look a little thin though? Just wondering.

I believe that’s just the angle. Any other photos? Definitely wait for one more opinion though.

Depending on where in Alaska, they have been reported in the south part. But rare, obviously.

A catbird would have a much longer tail, would be larger overall, slimmer in appearance, would be more gray than brown, it would lack any streaking, and would have rufous UTCs.

I have a few other photos, one of which is the same angle from the other side and the other of which doesn’t include the head. I think you are right, though.
