My first thought on the center one was white cedar. I know it’s more reddish brown but the heartwood can be darker. One to the left looks like soft maple or poplar. Topmost, poplar. But they could all be the same thing or anything. Tough to identify pallet wood because they often use whatever they can get cheap and the sapwood of many trees is light colored.

Sometimes it is easier to identify with close up pictures that show the grain a little better. A shot of the end grain can help too, just use a knife or a chisel to cut a smooth spot first though. Do you know the origin of the pallet (domestic or Asia for example)? That can help too.
