Taken at Manasquan Reservoir today. It looks like a Wilson's Warbler to me as the black cap seems to show just barely from this angle, the beak size and wings look right, and there was one reported there earlier today but I'd like to get some opinions on if it could be a yellow warbler.
There have been confirmed reports of a Virginia rail at this exact location and I thought I had it in these photos but I'm leaning toward clapper rail. It looked very small in the brief views I had but the over-all details including bill length don't seem to point to Virginia. Can anyone ID...
I took these a few years ago in June before I had much practice with identifying birds. Is the bird an American Pipit? There were 2 or 3 in the field - habitat was right but seems there are few sightings of this species in June.
Are either of these Western Sandpipers? There were 2 reported but unconfirmed at this location today. Several confirmed reports at this location in the past few weeks. The first 3 photos are of one individual, and the photos 4-5 are of another individual. Both looked to have longer somewhat...

Are photos 4 and 5 semipalmated as well?
Also wondering if the...
