One of the knapweeds, maybe diffuse?
Nope. It's difficult to scale in that picture; the individuals being pointed to are about 6-8 feet tall.
Could it be Saltcedar or an Olive?
Well, yes, it could be.

Not sure what the "main" difference is but I know that elk thistle and other native thistles will often be seen grazed on by native wildlife, while native thistles will not.
