1. some sort of flycatcher?
2. is this the same? the feathers on belly look more yellow.
3. my best guess was female house finch but I don't feel like that's right

2. don't know... maybe Acadian Flycatcher?
3. I agree with female House Finch

and last one look like a house with little larger bill

I suspect that No. 2 isn't Acadian because of the lack of a prominent eye-ring. Could also be Willow. It would be hard to tell if it's the same bird from No. 1.

The exact location is Mill Creek Marsh. I've been trying to see if there's anything posted about what others have seen there recently

Here's a link to the Ebird break down for Hudson County (if I have the right place). According to Ebird, Willow is the most reported Empidonax. Hopefully someone else will chime and help.
