    I'd say that both #1 and #2 are Eastern Wood-Pewee. They both seem to have very long primary projections. On #2, it looks like there are the smudgy undertail coverts. Agree the bill appears dark on #1, but that may be a photo artifact, and I'd trust the structural appearance over that detail. Agree with Veery for #3.

    Wacky looking thing. Bill, structure, other things wrong for Phoebe, I couldn't see this as anything besides an Eastern Kingbird I think. I find that bills often look a lot stubbier from underneath, so that could have something to do with the stubby appearance. As for hed contrast, I think it could be a lithing thing. White band on the tail eliminates pretty much everything I think as well...

    Primary projection on #1 is way too long for a phoebe and its head is too small compared to its body. I'd say it's an Eastern Wood-Pewee (based on range). I agree with Veery for #3. Do you have any more photos of #2?

    1, 2. Look good for western. Long, droopy bill. Sometimes the rufous isn't as obvious. I'd call the rest except 5 Semipalmateds, and 5 is another Western, I think the pics just ended up out of order. Some of those birds look very short-billed, but I guess it could just be angle.

    Bill is too heavy for a phoebe. This is a Myiarchus flycatcher, but I don't know if we can see enough in these photos to narrow it down to species.

    1. Eastern Phoebe 2. Great Crested Flycatcher 3. I agree with Veery.

    For #1 ... If I saw that here in Florida, I'd call it an Eastern Phoebe, but would be open to other suggestions. Or maybe a Pewee.

    House Finch. Purple would have more purple pigment mixed with the red, I believe.

    Hosmer Grove is a good place to see some of the native forest birds, on the way up to the top of Haleakala. The nearby Waikamoi Preserve is also great, but is limited in access. Contact The Nature Conservancy for more info about when they lead hikes into there.
