Hello, Let's see if I guess things correctly. Mid-August photos.

1- Willow Flycatcher
2- Hybrid Glaucuous-winged Gull with something?
3, 4 Rhinoceros Auklet? (observed from the ferry Vancouver-Victoria.)

Thank you!

Bah humbug
Just reviving this thread to try to prompt a reply about any of the photos (particularly no.1)
Thank you!
Surprised you haven't had any replies. Want to say yes to 1 and 2, not sure on the other, but pretty rusty overall, so await other replies hopefully! ... ;-)

Willow Flycatcher looks likely for the first, but I can not be sure without other photos. Two looks like a Glaucous-winged x Western Gull hybrid. Three is a Rhinoceros Auklet. Four seems a possible Rhino Auklet too, but impossible to say from this picture.
