Second bird can't be a Yellow-throated Vireo because this bird has all yellow on the under belly but in the sibley it shows yellow until the chest. My first thought for the bird was a White-eyed Vireo. Agree with Blackpoll.
id say blackpoll and juvie white eyed vireo
I agree. Second bird looks great for juvenile White-eyed Vireo: gray head with conspicuous yellow spectacles. Looks just like all the young WEVIs I see.

Thanks for the additional input. For #1, how would Bay-breasted be eliminated? For #2, I wasn't aware that immature White-eyed Vireos have dark irises (and I'm not near my field guides), but W-E Vireo is consistent with my memory of the GISS of the bird. Having said that, I am uncertain about the true coloring of the underparts or the extent of yellow; underexposed areas often appear yellow in my photos. I'm only certain that the spectacles were distinctly yellow.
The undertail pattern for #1 eliminates Bay breasted. #2 Yes juvie WE Vireos have dark eyes and the darker/greyer colored head and yellowish undertail supports WE Vireo.
