Charlie Craig State Fish Hatchery, Northwest Arkansas, taken Oct. 17, 2018. Seems smaller than a Greater, and has a straight bill. Is this a Lesser?

Thank you for your replies! I'm never sure about hawks and sparrows.

I have a shot of a Laughing Gull. I was going by the broken eye ring and the curved upper beak on this one. Field guide said a red bill, but I couldn't tell about that. Thanks for your response, a Franklin's is a first for me!
At the Charlie Craig State Fish Hatchery, Northwest Arkansas. Seventeen open ponds, designated an IBA in Arkansas. Taken Oct. 18, 2018

I have seen some warblers coming back into our area. The yellow underparts are stumping me. Lake Norfork COE Park, North Central Arkansas, Sept. 30, 2018
No, I'm sorry. I waited for it to turn it's head to get the shot, and it flew as soon as I shot.

I first thought Eastern Phoebe, but now I'm not sure. Maybe just the light on the bill makes it look two-toned. Lake Frierson State Park, Northeastern Arkansas, Sept. 28, 2018.
Thank you! I really appreciate your quick response!
It was a very foggy morning, and I thought I was getting a Mississippi Kite until I got home and cleaned up the shot. I now think it might be an Osprey. I didn't know the second bird was in the shot until it cleaned up. Could it be a Belted Kingfisher? Lake Frierson State Park, Northeastern Arkansas, Sept. 28, 2018
Thank you! The Northern Parula is a lifer for me!
I'm not sure about either bird, but could the small one be a Northern Parula? Lake Frierson State Park, Northeastern Arkansas, Sept. 26, 2018

At first, I thought, "Just another robin", but when I got home, I wasn't so sure. Panther Bay COE Park, Lake Norfork, North Central Arkansas. Sept. 18, 2018

Thank you! The others that I've seen have all been above the water. I guess you're right about being full. I've never seen one in this park, usually out over fish hatcheries. Thanks for your quick response!
Pasture land, near ponds, North Central Arkansas. He didn't seem interested in the ponds, more about the pasture around him. Sept. 15, 2018
