Can someone please confirm that pics 1 + 2 is an Eastern Wood-Pewee, and 3-5 are Great Crested Flycatcher? Taken in Port Credit Ontario in August.
Thanks
Chris

Yes to Great Crested for 3-5. Not sure about the first bird. I'm confused by the angle, lighting, and lack of wingbars.

Looking at the head pattern (1/2), it looks very “contrasty“ with a “loral line” not something that one might expect with Warbling Vireo, further the upper part colour looks to be a rich olive green, I’m wondering if REV might be a better contender?

Cheers

Ken is probably thinking Red-eyed vireo. I do not know which vireo, but one of them was my immediate thought when seeing the first image.

I agree 1 is probably a warbling vireo. You can tell it's definitely not a wood-pewee, because wood-pewees have very short tarsi. This bird has long tarsi.
