CLOSED: Sparrows and Flycatchers

Willis, TX(Zone 8b)

These photos were shot last week on a ranch between Comfort and Fredericksburg, Texas. See map in next post. I'm not sure of ID's since some are juveniles I think.

1. I am thinking Chipping Sparrow - Parent feeding youngster.
2. Another chippie in front of the female House Finch?
3. I don't know what this bird on the right is. It showed up with the Brown-headed Cowbird.
4. Flycatcher?
5. Flycatcher?

Appreciate any help...
