Shot today in Galveston

1 & 2. Flycatcher - any way to tell which one?
3. Northern Parula?

1&2 looks like Eastern Wood Pewee to me
3 is Common Yellow-throat as best as I can tell from the pic

Oh yes! I think that is correct for both.
I just read Sibley's account of the Eastern Wood-Pewee and most of it fits perfectly - relatively short legs, weak partial eye-ring, dusky vest, no tail flicking, returning to the perch repeatedly.
And I see that the Parula should have wingbars and this bird doesn't. It does look like the Common Yellowthroat!

Thanks so much!
