Help ID birds taken in Big Bend, TX

Recommended Posts

Hello All. These pics. were taken by a friend in BigBend Nat'l Park in Texas this weekend. I thought the first one was a chickadee, but on second  look the facial markings don't look right. I don't know the other ones. Anyone know what these are? Thank  you!

Thank you very much Seanbirds! I am so jealous, I wish I  had been there with them. Tony in looking at some photos on line the last bird does look like a Scott's Oriole, it has a lot more black on it than a hooded?

Thanks again. Linda

Even ignoring habitat and location, the last bird looks nothing like an Evening Grosbeak. The pattern is completely wrong- EVGR are mostly Buffy yellowish with large patches of white on the wings, not black and yellow
