So, I just did the entry for the Pine Warbler, and how I had just seen one yesterday at my window, and now I’m wondering if it was a Yellow-throated Vireo, because they look so similar! I think it was indeed a female Pine Warbler because it had less yellow, but I will never know for sure. It still makes a good story though.

Black Vulture

Lacking a good sense of smell, these smaller vultures soar higher than Turkey Vultures (who do have good sniffers) to keep an eye on where they're going and hopefully follow them to carcasses.

Common Yellowthroat

These little warblers like tangled vegetation near marshes or wetlands, which is why I spotted one near a creek amongst all the tangly Witchhazel and Brook Alder.

Eastern Kingbird

These birds got their name because they are super aggressive with each other and other species defending their nests. In addition they have a hidden crown of yellow on their head which is only visible when they attack.

Northern Flicker

Kind of a cross between a ground feeding bird and a woodpecker, I like to cover all my bases food-finding-wise.
