All taken today, near Albany, NY.

1. Blue-headed Vireo?

2. Some kind of black-throated warbler?

3. What is up with this female Mallard? She has green on her head.

Looks good for blue-headed vireo and black-throated green warbler.

Awesome! The BTG is a new one for me. I'm slowly getting new warblers but terrible pics so far (except for the Pine that visited my suet for a couple weeks).

Maybe a American Black Duck x Mallard hybrid male on the duck?

Maybe, although the male Mallard on the right and this duck were sticking together the whole time I was there (over an hour).

The duck looks like an intersex Mallard to me: http://www.birdforum...ad.php?t=157088
