Mystery Birds – Solved!

I was camping in the Meadow Lake Park this last week and went hiking often. I’m just going over my pictures now and I think I’ve identified most of the birds I saw but these four have stumped me. Any suggestions?

Thanks to Alaina and Robert for identifying my mystery birds.

The first one fooled me because I didn’t realize that the underside of Dark-eyed Juncos’ tails were so white!

A juvenile something?

I was happy to see that the second one is actually a new bird for me.

Some kind of wren?

Chestnut-sided Warbler

The third one is a juvenile example of the first one.

The last one is one I’ve only ever seen from the front before.

Not a good picture, so maybe not identifiable?

Red-eyed Vireo

That’s what I love about the Saskatchewan birding community – so many people that are so generous with their expertise. Thanks again!
