2. Yellow-rumped Flycatcher (1st winter male, thanks Sherman for the ID)

3. White-shouldered Starlings

4. Daurian Starling

During the ferry trip, we found:
5. Bridled Terns ~40

6. Aleutian Terns ~8

The starling on the left of the photo is Daurian - note the dark eye and white stripe down the scapulars.

The Dusky warbler would be extremely early. Do you have any photos of this bird?

Thanks John for the ID. I didn't notice there are other species of starlings around.

Please find the warbler photo here. I didn't hear the typical "tsack" sound of Dusky Warbler. Will it be an Arctic Warbler?

Yes, it looks like an Arctic Warbler. Note the narrow wing bar and green upperparts.
