These are two birds from October of 2018 in the East Bay area of California (near San Francisco). I think the first is a poorly resolved Western Bluebird, but I'm not sure of the one in the next couple of shots. I'm wondering if it's a flycatcher of some kind. Thanks!

These are Say's Phoebes, which is a type of flycatcher. You can easily identify them by their gray-brown upperparts and breast and their cinnamon belly. This flycatcher is also relatively long-tailed and large-headed.

Oh gosh, I thought I could recognize a Say's Phoebe. Nope! Thanks very much for your help. Much appreciated!
