Flycatcher, Southern Vancouver Island

Sorry for the poor quality of the photo.

The head is not extremely peaked, but that could just be the position, sitting squat.

Grayish, with no eye-ring. White bellow. Western wood-pewee?

Looks like an Eastern Wood-peewee

Could be western then? (in the Pacific North-West).

Here's another flycatcher (and an even worse picture). Seen soon after the first one, but I don't think it's the same one. This one has a distinctly greenish tingue.

Nothing against it being a Western Wood-pewee as far as can be ascertained from the photos.

I am leaning towards the pewee for those first two. Not sure about the second one.

Here's one last one. This one I suppose is unidentifiable from the photo.

Flycatchers are tough. I ought to hone my hearing, as I think that's the best way to distinguish them.
