Random Ottawa Birds

Recommended Posts


   I'm looking for help on these random birds seen today in Ottawa:

1) ???

2) Eastern Wood-pewee?

3) Song Sparrow?  It somehow doesn't look right for a Song Sparrow to me, but nothing else leaps to mind.

4) Tennessee Warbler?  Is there enough here for an id?

5) No idea what this clumsy bird is...

I’m still seeing Nashville here. I think that’s just where the light is peaking through the leaves. 

I think there's a pretty slim chance the light would hit right where both the yellow wing and tail patches are supposed to be on a redstart.  The light wouldn't turn a dark tail bright yellow anyway.

First, thanks everyone for your inputs.  They were very helpful.

For bird number 4, unfortunately, I don't have any other pictures.  However, American Redstart is making a bit of sense for me.  Zooming in on the picture, I notice that the eye-ring isn't really complete.  It's more two arcs, one above and one below with a faint, dark line through the eye.  This, and the colours on the tail and wing would probably point towards Redstart.

What do you think?

Thanks again!
