1. Warbling Vireo (I think, wait for others to confirm).

2. Flycatcher for sure, and Least seems plausible to me though not certain.

Agreed.

I'm not going to hazard a guess for eastern flycatchers, other than I don't think the body is squat enough for a Least.

Re: willow/alder - you pretty much can't distinguish - generally.  My first thought was willow, but the eye-ring is a little more prominent than I've seen in known willow flycatchers.  Not a Least - eye-ring is too small (imho).  And the slight yellowish belly also leads me back to alder.

Yeah, but how are we ruling out Alder?

Giss, which is pretty much useless for Traill’s, admittedly. Best to leave it as a slash

Yeah, I'm kind of leaning Alder too, but if it wasn't heard, the best protocol is to leave as a slash.
