No idea on either of these.  Both were seen yesterday in Austin, TX.  Here's the first one.

Thanks,

Tim

1. Yellow-Rumped Warbler

2. American Pipit

I agree, but I must admit, I've never seen a pipit on a wire.

Thanks!  I think I see how you both got American Pipit.  And Yellow-Rumped Warbler makes sense since there were a lot of them in the general area, but what pointed you in that direction?

It's a drab warbler with streaks on the flanks, and there actually is a wee bit of yellow showing at the bend of the wing.

I'm getting a Catharus thrush vibe for the bird on the wire. Probably a Hermit Thrush.

Thrushes are smaller, darker, and have shorter tails. This is definitely an American Pipit.
