Yellow-bellied Flycatcher?

Recommended Posts

Franklin County, Pennsylvania - 05/23/20

There was one reported here earlier in the day. First 3 pictures I know are the same bird. The last was at the same location a little while later. Both Yellow-bellied?

I'm only going to weigh in on the first bird. I'm pretty sure it's a yellow-bellied. The thin eyeing, yellow lower mandible, white wing bars, and low contrast throat seem good for yellow-bellied.  I'm not sure though, I don't really have any experience with separating this from least.

The last bird is a Traill's type. It might be tempting to consider Acadian, but notice the short, fat tail, throat contrast, and shorter primary projection.
