I'm on board with Northern Mockingbird, but the first one is definitely not a Verdin.

I respect your decision since I have never seen a Verdin myself. However, the only other bird that it resembles, in my opinion, is the Bushtit, but the Bushtit does not have a yellow mandible. With a yellow mandible, sharp beak, and overall gray body I am thinking that this is a juvenile Verdin.

Is there a particular reason why you do not think it is a juvenile Verdin, @Dave?
