Seeking help with confusing flycatchers.  All seen at Riverbend Park in northern Virginia on 23 September.

#1:  Eastern Phoebe?

#2:  Olive-Sided Flycatcher or Eastern Wood-Pewee?

#3-5.  Same bird.  Olive-Sided Flycatcher or Eastern Wood-Pewee?

#6-5:  Probably the same bird, at long range.  Eastern Wood-Pewee?

1.  Wingbars are way too bright for a pheobe.  Empid is as far as I'll go.

2.  Eastern Wood-Pewee (Olive-sideds have darker, streaked vests with bright white throats and bellies)

3-5.  Eastern Wood-Pewee

6-7.  Horizontal posture looks more like a warbler to me, but I don't know what it is.
