Want to double check one bird and get an idea on another...

So, this has to be a solitary sandpiper... that's what I called it in the field and I can't really see it being something else... but... the bill... not sure about the color and, it seems thin. Even thinner in another photo...

and then this...
tennessee warbler? or a vireo?
It was straight up so I didn't get very good views. I feel like I saw some sort of eye-line(something) that would suggest one of the above possibilities... This pic does seem to show a different, pretty obvious, between the face/cheeks and throat.

1. Yes

2. Warbling Vireo

what feature here specifically makes it a warbling vireo?
There are a few vireos that are tricky for me unless I have just the right angles... or they're singing...  and then the tennessee warbler can look similar.
What do I need to be looking at here? Maybe it will help me later on. 🙂

the pale throat, pale lores, and overall plain pattern rules out red eyed and Philadelphia videos. The thick bill rules out Tennessee warbler.
