I took these yesterday and was looking for some help identifying them so I can label the photos.

1) Some kind of flycatcher?

2) Savannah Sparrow?

3) Not a bird (obviously) but I thought maybe someone would know. A Dragon Fly of some sort.

Edit: 1 More
4) American Black Duck? Odd-colored Mallard?

This is a red-winged black bird. Doesn't look the same as #2.

#2 is a female.

Your Flycatcher (#1) is an Eastern Kingbird. I can't see enough of your dragonfly to be certain, but it is most likely a male Widow Skimmer.

Nice images!

Nice shot of the Eastern Kingbird Dan. I concur with the IDs. The dragonfly is definitely a male Widow Skimmer.
