I have 2 shots of the second one which I am guessing might be a Great Crested Flycatcher...but not positive.

Here is #1

I think you're right about the Great Crested Flycatcher, and I think the other is one of the Empidonax Flycatchers. They're so hard to tell apart from each other ( Alder, Willow, Acadian, and Least Flycatchers)...maybe you can ID it from its voice.

Thanks Claypa! Unfortunately I am not good at all with the bird calls! The thing on the first one is the heavy outline on the wings that is really throwing me! I think I've seen that bird around the yard but sure can't figure it out! I wish I could see if it has an eye-ring, that would sure help!

Yep, got to agree there's nothing useful can be done with that Empidonax!

Ditto to Claypa on Great Crested Flycatcher too.

Thanks Resin...I found this pic I was about to delete. It is the same bird...don't know if it helps or not...prepare your eyes!!
