All taken today, SE Idaho (Jefferson County). All photos are different birds. I think a few photos are the same species. Thanks for the help!!!

1. Fly Catcher?

1. Looks like a Cordilleran Flycatcher. Grennish overall, teardrop shaped eyering

2. Willow Flycatcher. Strong white throat patch, and overall shape point to Traill's. Willow by range

3. Maybe Gray Flycatcher. Short Projection, faint wing bars and eyerings.

4. Maybe Hammond's. Appears to have a pretty blocky head. Hard to judge projection at this angle. No white on edge of tail so not gray.

5. Dark-eyed Junco

6. Orange-crowned Warbler

Why isn't 6 a Common Yellowthroat?

I think you're right. Bill shape looks better for one, and no really eyestripe. Thanks for the correction!

(#6) After looking at photos of Common Yellowthroat, I am not really seeing it.  The eyestipe might not be as visible due to the eye being in a shadow.  Still seems to me Orange-crowned Warbler would be a better fit. But I could definitely be wrong!

A drab female can appear to be close to the same color throughout the body. This appears to have a eye-ring not eye archs, and OCWA have a sharp pointy bill, while the yellowthroat has a wider one. I think Yellowthroat is what you should go with.

It is a definite Common Yellowthroat.

4 looks better for Gray Flycatcher because of the long bill. Compare it to the petite bill on 3, which is a Dusky/Hammond's type bird. 6 is a Yellowthroat.
