1. Summer, Grasshopper Sparrow?Posted Image
2. I think this was during fall migration, I have more pictures if needed, but I am thinking Nashville WarblerPosted Image
3. Late Summer, I have no idea, maybe Worm-eating Warbler? I do remember I saw a couple of Worm-eating Warblers at the time this was taken.Posted ImagePosted Image

1: Agree with Grasshopper
2: Looks good for a Nashville
3: I'd say it's a warbler, maybe Black-throated Green

1: Agree with Grasshopper
2: Looks good for a Nashville
3: I'd say it's a warbler, maybe Black-throated Green

agree with 1 & 2, the last was giving me a Blackburnian Warbler feel,

2 objective realities.

  • God is real! (Heaven and hell too)
  • God is not real! (No heaven and hell)

2 subjective decisions.

  • You believe in God!
  • You do not believe in God!

4 scenarios.

  • If God is real, the man who believes in God will be rewarded in Heaven
  • If God is not real, the man who believes in God has not lost anything.
  • If God is real, the man who does not believe in God is in trouble.
  • If God is not real, the man who does not believe in God has won nothing.

I'm not so sure about #1 -- it looks like a young Dickcissel. #3 is a Red-eyed Vireo -- the bill's awful heavy for a warbler, and the face pattern doesn't match any warbler that would have that undertail pattern.

Okay, so far have:

2. Nashville Warbler
3. Red-eyed Vireo, I don't know why I didn't think of that before, seeing as several were present that day.

And as for number 1, I have another picture here, cropped and lightened a bit.Posted Image

Yeah, that closer shot looks good for a very young Grasshopper.

that last one doesnt look like a vireo to me. the line through the eye and other markings dont look crisp enough and vireos dont have streaking on the sides of the breast or a black spot under the neck..

I don't see any streaking on the neck, and the couple of black spots on the neck look more like misplaced feathers to me. Any of the warblers that lack black at the base of the underside of the tail also either lack a eye-stripe, or combine it with dark auriculars, which this bird clearly doesn't have.

The only "streaking" and black spot I see are, as psweet said, ruffled feathers.
