Warbler and other bird calls from May

Recommended Posts

These recordings are all from May 13, 2018, in south-central Kansas in an old-growth mixed forest with a stream and pond areas.
It's understandable if only some are identified since some of the recordings aren't that great, I appreciate any help at all with this! Thanks in advance!
 
Here is the ebird checklist with all of them, the ones I am questioning are under warbler sp. and passerine sp. I thought it would easier for everyone to show the full checklist than give all 8 individually haha.

Thanks again, let me know if any more details are needed or if the link doesn't work!

wow, lots of pictures and lots of sound files. The sound files I'm giving up on for now. There are a lot of sounds in each one making it a little tricky for me but some others might be able to pick a few out of it. I think the one you questioned as being a prothonotary is correct but I got lost on some others.

Ah sorry to hear if it is confusing! I wasn't really sure how else to upload them, I am sorry :c 
I  thought of making a separate post for all of them but I didn't want to spam since it is a lot. 
I thank you for the help with the Prothonotary warbler though!! I'll try to figure something out that might make it all easier to see, maybe uploading them to xeno-canto and putting them here would be more helpful? I figured ebird would be more helpful since you can see spectograms though. Maybe it's actually easier to view them directly from the macaulay library so not to be overwhelmed by all the other stuff? Like this? https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=warble&searchField=user&hotspot=Old Mill, Sumner, US-KS&hotspotCode=L6588485&userId=USER856612&q=S. Queen&species=warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.) - Parulidae sp.
I could make another post for the non-warbler birds

No need to worry. There are a lot of sounds there and they may not all be easy to figure out but I'm sure someone else will have some thoughts. I'm good with sounds for SOME birds but mostly just ones I'm used to seeing and hearing in person.

Haha I feel you there. I am only good with the ones I am used to seeing and hearing in person as well, however all the bunches of spring songs still trip me up.

I think I can pick out a Tennessee Warbler in the first one, not sure I can hear the second one, although I can maybe see it on the sonogram. Not sure on that one. The third might actually be a Red-winged Blackbird call, but I don't know if that's what you're referring too. Last reminds me of Yellow, but that doesn't seem right for the top of a canopy, maybe a variation of Tennessee.

Awesome, thank you so much! Tennessee is actually a lifer for me if that's what it is. I might amplify them a bit in audacity (which I just found out about recently and I am enjoying messing with it) and re-upload them so some are easier to hear. Though I know some just aren't good cause the bird was distant/quiet and there's a lot of other stuff singing over them and may be unidentifiable, that is understandable haha. I didn't actually see the bird in the last call, so it's possible he wasn't quite at the top, but he just sounded like he was up high so I assumed too fast. 

I feel you there with the passers and spring/summer birds in general. I guess I am just preparing even though it's February haha.
