Warblers from coastal MA

Recommended Posts

I would like help with two birds. Let me start with the easier one:

1) Blackpoll warbler? Based on Two white wingbars & streaked upperparts. The legs are not very orange, but I guess that's okay?

2) This one was very confusing. It was staying close to the ground, and was exhibiting behaviors of a young bird or a weak bird. Could this be another Blackpoll warbler, based on orangish legs and streaked upperparts (may be)? The wingbars are not bold though. Also I don't see blurry streaking on the flanks. So my second guess is a Pine warbler.

Both are Blackpolls. Amount of visible streaking is variable, so note the orange toes/feet. Bay-breasted and Pine will not show this.

Pine Warblers will sometimes show orangish feet, but will never have such distinct streaking on the mantle.
