Agree with 1-7. Leaning NRWS on 8&9, but not enough there for me to rule out other species.

Life List: 676

Latest birds:  Swainson's Warbler, Barn Owl, Glaucous Gull

ABA 2014: 189 species
Isle of Wight County 2014: 147 species

8 and 9 look like juvenile Tree Swallows to me - Rough-winged shouldn't be that bright white below, and they shouldn't show that slight fork to the tail.

Maybe I was off because I answered part two first, and there was a bunch of NRWS in that post. I didn't even look at these guys that close because of it. Isn't that cinnamon wing bars on the first, though?

Sibley's shows juvenile Trees with white tips on the tertials -- this could be a lighting issue, I think. Looking closer at that same shot, the throat is also pretty white.

Well, I do see these two swallows in close association all the time, so makes sense that they would be in this instance too. I defer to psweet on this one. I should have studied them closer.
