“Warbler Neck” part 2

All of the above look almost alike. There are a few differences in some of them.  One has a black bill while the others have orange bills.  I was told that morning at Fort Desoto by “bird experts” that these were flycatchers.   They could be eastern woodpee or a least flycatcher.  They all looked like eastern phoebes to me.

There were a few redstarts in the trees. I’m not sure why they call them redstarts. They don’t have any red in them, only yellow and orange.

I think this is a Tennessee warbler.

A new bird for me, a Swainson’s Thrush. He was high up in the trees and I had to brighten up this one.

This looks like a young mockingbird.

A usual sight during migration, a black and white warbler.

Next year I’m going to take the time to take notes on what these birds are.  I heard several times different people calling birds different things. I usually come home and look everything up but they are all starting to look the same. Please correct me if any of these are wrong.
