Are these all Magnolia Warblers? Was about 4 or 5 of them in a few bushes and trees. Unsure if I caught all of them. These were the best shots I could get. Last one is I think no doubt a Magnolia

Magnolias have a really good field mark, their 'Tail dipped in ink' pattern, which your photos show nicely.

Oh good to know! I noticed the slight streaks on the side coupled with the bluish head and back. I never noticed the tail but now i do! This is a lifer for me regardless, but was still hoping to find something else in the middle of all of these, since warblers tend to move in groups of different species
 
Yep, Magnolia Warblers are the only warbler with this tail pattern (white at front, black at back). It's often the quickest and easiest field mark to see. Congratulations on the lifer!
