Sunflowers and Hummingbirds

Yesterday was a nice warm day, 88°. Although thunder and dark clouds caused Findley and I to hurry through our morning walk, it didn't rain. It seems our sunflowers like this rainy year. We have a good crop and more to come.
(Note the Findley photo bomb)
We have grown sunflowers beside our storage shed since we've lived here. 
I always see Goldfinches, Cardinals and other birds, but have never seen a Hummingbird enjoying the flowers until yesterday when this little lady showed up.
 She liked the yellow flowers...
 ...red flowers...
 ...and multicolored blooms.
Happy Sunday!

Bird on a Fence

Carnton Plantation
This fence surrounded a Civil War cemetary on the grounds.
Closer view with a bird. I tried to find him in my bird book, but couldn't identify him. Any ideas?

P.S. He has been identified by my good readers as a Mockingbird! Thanks!

Identification Help

I'm back for a while anyway. My main problem is time. When I can't find time to return comments, I feel guilty and get mean comments, so I had to stop posting on Rubbish.

But I love posting here, so here I am.

I have a few birds I can't identify. I believe they are juveniles. Any help would be appreciated. 
I don't have a guess on this one.
Possibly a House Finch?
Possibly Brown Thrasher?
I believe this one is a juvenile red-headed woodpecker since I see a male almost every time I go to The Rez.

Thanking you in advance.
