I always like to get confirmation on my bird identification. What do you think these are? An oriole and maybe a pair of song sparrows?
Yup. The song sparrows are especially cute. You can tell by the streaks and the 'spot' on the chest.
i haven't seen any orioles up here yet, but if they are visiting you right now their arrival in my area is imminent!
the song sparrows are cute and unassuming, i see them now and again in the summer, their calls are always welcome.
Yep, that's a Baltimore Oriole and a Song Sparrow. Song Sparrows and Lincoln's Sparrows look almost alike, but the Lincoln's would be less likely to appear in your yard.
These sites should help!

I think the top two are Northern Orioles.
I don't know about the US, but over here, in the absence of a clear identification the one at the bottom of your picture would be referred to as a LBJ (little brown job)!
