I was looking at some old threads recently that shook my confidence in my own ability to identify flycatchers. So here are three photos I took in early September that I assumed were eastern wood pewees or phoebes. If you could confirm them/correct me, that'd be great. All photos were taken in Lancaster, PA:

ONE: Pewee

TWO: Pewee

THREE: Phoebe

Yup, both look like Eastern Wood-Pewees to me!

Thanks. I added a third one in there if you have any thoughts.

I'm thinking Pewee for all 3 -- the last one's a bit hard to see, but there appears to be yellow on the lower mandible in all three shots. A Phoebe will have an all-black bill.

Oh yeah, I see it now. A bit of orange right on the base.
