Today in Western New York. I have two different species I’m trying to identify. The first I believe is a Great-Crested Flycatcher, and the second (2 birds in the second photo) I believe are Willow Flycatchers based on the noise they were making (sharp high-pitched “tick!“)

It's really hard to tell from the images, but I might consider Eastern Phoebe or Willow Flycatcher for the first bird- the head shape and structure does not look like a myiarchus flycatcher. The second photo definitely could be Willows, and if the call matches the 'fitz' calls of Willow, then I'd definitely call it that.
