Thrush IDs

OK, I am terrible with thrushes.

What are these?:









All taken over the course of the past couple of weeks at Northwestern and Montrose. Nos. 2 & 3 are possibly the same individual.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Sulli. I didn't quite see the reddish tail on Nos. 1 & 4 so I wasn't quite sure, but I feared they were Hermits, as you now confirm.
