I can't tell if these are the same bird or different birds.  I believe one is a Blackpoll that I shot yesterday and the other one is a Cape May??  I am confused!  Both taking a bath in a creek and I thought they were the same bird.  Thanks for any help

Notice that the Blackpoll has darker streaking on the back and weaker streaking on the breast.  The Cape May is more gray with a cheek patch and just one white wingbar.
