(Hermit?) Thrush, Vireo, & Finch in Central Park, NY

Recommended Posts

The pale gray spotting on the chest of the thrush make it a Veery. 

 

Second bird is a warbler with the thin bill, I think Bay-breasted.

 

Last bird is a female House Finch.

I'll agree on the first and third but, I'd wait for another opinion on the warbler. (and keep in mind, Liam said "I think....."  )
I'm no expert on them, especially ones I have never seen(bay breasted) but I'm not seeing much there that would suggest that to me. Mind you, again, I'm not good with them but, I looked at the book and I'd expect more color(even a little) and not so dark a tail from a bay-breasted.
Anyway, I can't do  more than guess with this view. Any other pictures of that bird? 
I'm sure someone else will reply.

If I'm wrong and someone confirms bay-breasted, please explain why so maybe I'll learn something... maybe.  :)

Thanks for weighing in — I do have more shots of bird 2: better angles, poor focus + a partial shot that shows more color.

Thanks for the additional photos.  The warbler is a female Black-throated Blue (pale lower eye arc and supercilium).
