-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

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

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.
