Loon and Warbler help in Dufferin, Ontario (1 Viewer)

I'm looking for a little confirmation on a couple of birds I saw this morning. Unfortunately I couldn't get a closer picture of what I believe to be two Common Loons (Pictured behind and to the right of the Swan), nor could I get a second picture of the Warbler. I think the Warbler is an immature Mourning Warbler. Or maybe a Nashville Warbler? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

1. I see an adult breeding common loon (you really should start calling them great northern divers - it's far more fun) and a grey and white object.
2. Personally, I'd start with common yellowthroat, but I know nothing.

I was also thinking Common Yellowthroat out in the field. Running it through Merlin bird app, didn't suggest that. Warblers are just so quick.

I think both non-swans are Common Loons, and the warbler is a Common Yellowthroat.
Thanks for responding. Common Loon is a new life bird for me. I was going to wait them out to see if they would get closer, but they were only moving side to side. As well as diving for food. I am surprised I got as good a picture as I did, as they were so far out there, I couldn't see them with the naked eye. I only saw they were there when I zoomed in to see what kind of swans those were. And general consensus is Common Yellowthroat on the warbler, so I'll go with that.
