Both look like reaters to me. The first bird looks too bulky for Lesser.

All Yellow Warblers are yellow warblers, but not all yellow warblers are Yellow Warblers

Oh, I think you meant greater. Bill would be to short, especially on the first pic

LOL! Add a "G" in front of it! And, I agree with the fisherman.

Just a weird angle, I think he is looking slightly away from the camera, making the bill look short.

Reater is a slang term. JK! I meant Greater. Must have hit "Ctrl-g" instead of "Shift-g" by mistake.

EDIT: I agree with Creeker, it looks like the bird has its head turned slightly. Great minds, eh Creeker? Or should I say "reat minds"?
