I suspect the answer to most of these is either Yellow-Rumped Warbler or Kinglet, but I'm hoping for something else as well :)

Pictures 1-5 of 9. My guesses for #1 and #5 is Blue-Grey Gnatcatcher?

Thanks! I haven't been there in years but may go to their birding festival next winter to see Whooping Cranes again.

#1. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
#2. Ruby-crowned Kinglet
#3 & #6. Blue-headed Vireo
#4 & #9. Yellow-rumped Wabler
#8. Northern Parula

Edit: I see that I cross-posted with Microtus! At least we agree.

#5 is undoubtedly a warbler, maybe Orange-crowned? OC Warbler might not be high in a tree, though...

#7 is interesting, not much to go on. I get the impression of a fairly wide bill.

eta: scratch that, maybe Orange-crowned Warbler as birdmeister says
7 Blue-headed Vireo

I have a different angle on #5 if that helps :)

Yes, it helps a bit, thanks!

I think Orange-crowned Warbler is right. I am guessing it was not in the canopy, but rather at low-mid level?
