Always a tough group, at least for me. Let's see how many I got. I appreciate any comment.

Thanks in advance

The fourth bird (and perhaps the second, though I'm fairly certain it's Ruby-throated due to the bill) is a little ambiguous imo. Otherwise, I agree with your IDs.

I'm pretty sure it's a Ruby-throated, you can see the red gorget coming in on the first photo

Ah, I missed that. So yes, it's Ruby-throated. Pretty textbook GISS and bill shape too but I thought it better safe than sorry.
