This is a Pygmy grasshopper (Tetriginae), but that's as far as I have gotten. Any help on species is appreciated.

I think it is a carpenter bee (Xylocopa virginica)

Possibly a broad-winged hawk but I don't think they're found any further west than boulder.

Looks like it may be a gray catbird. I'm not sure about your locale though.

Thanks for the information bee.jacbs and for the compliment Ava. I added a 4th photo of the wasp covering his hole. I ran out of time earlier and didn't get to upload it.

They really sparkle. I'm hoping to get a cleaner shot soon now that I have it identified.

Willie, that's fascinating. I've watched these birds for years and have never paid close enough attention to catch that. And thanks for the extra help. This poor business major needs all the biology help I can get.
