Flycatchers, Northern Virginia (Sept. 7, 2020) (1 Viewer)

Hi, I took these in northern Virginia today (September 7, 2020).

1 & 2 are of the same bird, 3 might have been the same, but it might have been a different bird too.

4 is a different bird.

My guess is that 1-3 is/are Acadian and 4 is an Eastern Wood Pewee. Am I right?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

I think you're right. I think Yellow-bellied should have shown a more contrasting throat and not such a large-headed appearance. Wingbars tend to be brighter and thicker, too.
