The second one (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/41825778374) is of an Eastern Kingbird.

The first bird is a Western Wood-Pewee. Its vest is not dark and streaky enough for an Olive-sided Flycatcher. I agree with Eastern Kingbird for the second.

Second bird is clearly Eastern Kingbird. The first bird is not as clear. It has some aspects of Olive sided (white throat) but the vest is not as dark and doesn't have heavy streaking. The belly has a yellow wash rather than white. The lighter vest, lack of breast streaking, weak eye ring, and yellow wash to belly lead me to agree on W Wood-Pewee.
