Some of them don’t show the head well enough to be sure. A few of them look like Really Blurry Siskins because of the streaking around the face. Redpoll should have a blackish throat patch. Most of them look too brownish and heavily streaked to be redpolls. One of the ones where the head isn’t visible looks less streaked with a whitish background color - hard to say what it is. The general dimness of the pics may make a few of them look darker than they really are.

My wild guess is Common Redpolls, which don't belong here...SW Yamhill County near Grand Ronde Agency. At least, I've never seen them here before (at least to know what I was seeing.)
