Welcome to my first photo I.D. challenge of 2011. Play not just to test your i.d. skills, but play to win! Whoever is the first to get all of these right, or whoever gets the most correct answers in the next week will win The North American Bird Reference Book, version 5.0 (on CD for your computer) by John C. Robinson, a $64.95 value!
These photos were taken in several states including Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, and Virginia, so good luck! If you had The North American Bird Reference Book, you'd be able to narrow down the possibilities for each bird.

HINT: Regular followers of this blog will have a slight advantage as they may recall similar, but better photos of the same birds, and recognize the setting. If you are new to this blog, you've got a lot of catch-up work to do...well at least scanning through my blog posts going back until last summer.
