5 No idea.

I'll let someone else be more certain on the hawk. Something about it SEEMS small to me and even accipiters can have a reddish breast as adults BUT, should have a darker cap so, I'm leaning red-shouldered. I'd wish to see the back to be more confident personally but I'm learning...

Definitely yellow-rumped warblers...

and the last is male house sparrows.

I think the Red-Shouldered may look small in these photos because he's very fluffed up and appears to be leaning forward.  That may be what's giving him that squat appearance.

Or not.

Cooper's and Sharp-shinned Hawks also have much different tail patterns and longer tails.
