Agree with Falcon, but #3 is a Blackburnian Warbler; the pale braces on the scapulars is rather distinctive, and it also shows a bit of a pale central crown stripe.

I didn't even think of Blackburnian Warbler. But, that's exactly what it is!

And yes, the pale braces on back are unique among warblers.
