Help with ID. NJ USA.

I'm still new at this and having trouble sometimes.

I believe the first one is an Eastern Wood-Pewee. I'm not sure on the second one. Thanks in advance!

Not real sure about the second one but the first looks real good for the Eastern Wood-Peewee

Probably wrong, Song Sparrow, based on the Eye-line?

Just wondering why you think its a Willow Flycatcher? I just looked that and the Wood-Pewee up side by side and they are VERY similar.

Thanks!

Bump, does anyone else have an opinion on if this is a Willow Flycatcher or an Eastern Wood-Pewee?

Wings/pp projection apparently on the short side plus very bold wingbars make me think Willow Flycatcher is a better candidate too.
