The yellow birds im thinking are Wilson's Warbler but unsure about the other bird

The warblers (two photos at the beginning and one at the end) look like Orange-crowned. The third and fourth photos are a Warbling Vireo, and the fifth looks like a Lesser Goldfinch.

The fifth picture is actually the same as the first and second. But doesn't the Orange-crowned Warbler have streaking on teh bellly where my warbler is just yellow?

Are you sure about that? I can definitely see the sixth being the same as the first and second, but the fifth looks very much like a Lesser Goldfinch to me, and #1, 2, and 6 do not.

I agree with orange-crowned for the first two. Vireos are pretty much a mystery to me.

Agree with the vireo but just thought the OCW has more of a dirty looking yellow and my warbler looked bright yellow.

In the last photo, the breast does look faintly streaked, and the split eyering is clear. The first photo also shows the thin pointed bill of this Genus (can't remember the new classification), and the yellow vent. Wilson's would show a smaller bill, an unbroken eyering, and yellow above the eye.
