I think this is a Yellow-rumped Warbler - is it a juvenile? It does not quite fit into any the images on my searches for this species. Many thanks to all the experts out
there helping us newbies!!!! Taken September 6, 2021, dense mixed bush near a lakeshore.

They don't have an all yellow front. Usually mostly striped breast with yellow on its side. So I don't see it being a Yellow-rumped Warbler.

A bird with a striped breast with yellow on the sides is exactly what the first picture shows. The first, third and fourth photos are a Yellow-rumped Warbler, but the second photo is a different bird that I can't identify.

I agree with D Halas. For the second bird, I think I am seeing a bird with a white belly, yellow undertail coverts, and a tail without spots, which would fit a Nashville Warbler.

I think I solved the case! The second image (posted above) is a Red-eyed Vireo. I compared with a photo of a Red-eyed Vireo (first one below attached)and the rump end of the same bird. It looks like image two posted above, and they were taken at the same place, same day, same time.

Not this one, I don't - not enough visible. 'Plausible' means that there's nothing apparent to say that it isn't something - not that it is something.

you originally identified the red-eyed vireo in another post and I am concluding this is the rump end of that first bird you id'd - more that plausible it is definite for sure

See below, it is a Red-eyed Vireo.
