Following my visit to Canada last week I'm working my way through the many bird images I took. Some are easy to identify (mostly from what I've seen on here!) but some are less easy to identify. I've been using the excellent Cornell ornithology guide but I'd appreciate some help with the two below. Both seen in Ontario, Canada, close to the border with Detroit:

The first bird has me thinking Grey Vireo but not sure?

The next one I think might be either a Yellow-bellied flycatcher or possibly a Yellow-throated Vireo? Sorry for the poor quality of this shot, it's a 100% crop and it was taken through glass:

Any help appreciated and I will be posting images of what I saw on here once I've processed and identified all the birds.

I think the first one is a Philadelphia Vireo.

Not sure on the second one. I don't think it is a vireo though. I'm leaning to flycatcher or warbler.

Thanks John, looking at the pics on Cornell I see where you're coming from re the first bird, Philadelphia Vireo it is then!
Anyone else re the second bird?

I think you are spot on.

Thanks a lot, looking at the description and similar pics of the species, I think that looks right. I'd never have gotten that I.D. so really pleased I asked on here :)

First one is a Warbling Vireo. Philadelphia Vireo would be much darker in the loral area. Baltimore Oriole is correct on the other but looks more like an adult female to me.


Regards,
Chuck

That sounds pretty definite. Comparing the two varieties suggested for the first bird (Philadelphia Vireo and warbling Vireo) they are similar meaning it would be easy to mistake one for the other. With the comparisons side by side on Cornell though I can see why you'd say it was the latter so I'll change it to that. The I.D. on the 2nd bird stands as Baltimore Oriole so that's fine.

Thanks everyone :)

You'll notice I didn't offer any ideas on these ;). Good shots there Mark, of some birds I've never seen. Geez, you come to Canada and take right over!!!

Lol! Not much chance of that Ian. I got lucky in a few instances over the 2 weeks I was there. If I had the time I'd plan to return to Point Pelee for the Spring migration but I can't see that happening any time soon.

I too am glad expert identifiers such as Chuck are around Mark since, like Ian, I wouldn't have had a clue!
I have to ask though whether you were able to find any hummingbirds in your journey here?

Thanks Steve, I'd be the same with a lot of British birds, have to look them up!
I did get a brief view of male and female Ruby-throated Hummers yes, thanks, the shots I got of them were far from the standard of many on here. I've been sooo busy the last couple of days but I do intend a post with some of the better bird shots I got in the next day or two :)
