We've had all the above (although the orioles don't hang around very long, and the indigo bunting made just a brief appearance). In addition we get a red-headed woodpecker, the downy and hairy woodpeckers, the red-bellied woodpeckers, red-winged blackbirds, cowbirds, bluejays, and cardinals. And of course a variety of finches and sparrows.

Also near the house but not at the feeders, we have bluebirds, bobolinks and a meadowlark.

The hummers are increasing in number every day. I have a hummer window feeder which is pretty cool - it is clear so you can see the hummer's tongue as it drinks the nectar.
We have downy woodpeckers, red breated woodpeckers, nuthatches, titmice, gold finches, multiple sparrows and relatives, purple finches, cardinals, jays, starllings, and a racoon. Last year the **** took down the suet feeder, so I'm not replacing it for the spring/summer.

Mostly Cardinals, Finchs and Blue Jays. Have a few Woodpeckers in the evening time, along with doves eating off the ground. The wild bunnies come out in the early evenings and early morning to feed on stuff that is dropped and the good grass growing around the feeder.
All of the summer birds are home. The most recent arrivals are the chipping and white crowned sparrows. The little broad winged hawk is still sitting on top of the chicken run every morning window shopping, and there is a perigrine falcon who likes to visit the birdfeeder in order to stalk the diners! A robin is setting on 4 beautiful blue eggs in a nest she built right in the arm of my husbands back hoe! I guess he won't be working on the pond for at least a month!
