6. this was in a boreal bog - didn't expect a grackle... is this just a Common Grackle?

#1 looks like a Bay-breasted missing some undertail covert feathers. Redstart and Magnolia both have pale at the base of the tail, with black towards the tips. Magnolia would also be yellower below. Yellowthroats lack white spots in the tail feathers, and would be yellow on the undertail coverts. The white tips to the outer tail feathers we see here are found in quite a few warblers, but very few of them are unstreaked below, especially without extensive yellow. The yellowish or peachy wash to the flanks fits a Bay-breasted, I think.
