No one is a northern cardinal (no doubt), next looks like a pewee to me (Eastern Wood-Pewee is the one in your area -- prepared to be called on this one) and the last is ? possibly a juvenile scarlet tanager.

And welcome to Birdforum!

A welcome from me as well :t:

Like Niels said:

1. Northern Cardinal
2. Eastern Wood-Pewee
3. Tanager sp?

You have the id's just wanted to say welcome aboard, and nice Female Cardinal shot.
 
Thank you!

Wow, everyone, thank you so much for your quick replies! I've been looking for days for IDs on these birds.

I thought the yellow bird looked an awful lot like a Tanager. I just took a photo of a Summer Tanager (guessing?) a month ago and this one has a similar shape. So, a the yellow one is juvenile, maybe?

Thanks again!

Or a female, but I'm thinking the species is actually Scarlet Tanager instead. The bill appears smaller to me than that of the Summer Tanager you posted along side. I've been wrong before though. Also the wings of your green/yellow bird have black in them like a Scarlet Tanager.

Those were some of the reasons I was leaning scarlet T in my previous post. Also the hints of wing bar fit the drawing in Sibley reasonably well.

Agreed
 
Right Niels, I was agreeing with you and bringing your ID back to the surface as it seemed to me the OP missed what you said.

And your post strengthened the case, I was not completely sure :t:
