Tentatively ID'd... probably both wrong

1> A tern? Probably not enough detail to ID? (I sorta had it narrowed down between two, with my guesses... Caspian, or more probable, Least Tern, based on the black head and the pattern of black on the wing tip, with the tipping of the scales to Least because I think I see white across the front of the face)
2>Warbler (2 views, same bird) Probably Orange-crowned?

The warbler is indeed an Orange-crowned.

When this group flew over, I said to myself "Gulls". There were about 5 different groups, and some looked a lot different, (dark in color, but not ducks), but I cant get pictures of birds in flight fast enough to actually see ANYTHING on, normally (today, I think I took about 40 pictures of birds in flight, and only in two of them can you tell there were actually birds in the picture, not just smears)
I am not quite sure how I went from "Gulls" by the river, to "Terns" when I got home, but I do believe that this bird is probably another Franklin's Gull, based on your tips.
Hmm can I guess? Franklin's gull?
You did post your answer before I came back to respond to psweet, but it looks as if we both came up with the same answer.
