Yes, but which one?

Which oriole? (Orchard was reported but this looks too orange for Orchard and back was a bright rust)

Which flycatcher? (Have had Leasts but the bill looks too large and the breast seems to have some yellow)

Not that I wouldn't be content with a Least but do you think the bill is small enough for a Least? And my understanding is that short primary projection does not refer to how long the primaries extend towards the tip of the tail but how much longer the primaries are than the tertials.
I will pass on your oriole, but your Flycatcher is a Least. The primaries are short enough so that they do not touch. They do not even meet on the tail.
