Mystery Bird

I saw where male summer tanagers molt out of their red feathers in the fall and take on colors similar to the yellow – green of the females so this could be a pair of those. Not going to bet on it, though.

    For the first bird, consider a migrating 1st year black-throated green warbler.
    The second bird’s bill looks a little thin for a tanager. Some first year Tennessee warblers have the eye ring, and the coloring fits.

    • Thanks for the ID guess, yours is better than mine. I have had others call it for the black throat but no one else has hazarded a guess for the second bird. Juvies are often a tough call and the migrating occasionals thrown into the mix make it doubly difficult!
