Male Yellow-rumped Warbler (AKA Myrtle Warbler) and a flycatcher that looks like an Ash-throated, but that doesn't occur in Florida (if that is where you took this) - where did you take it?

Thanks for the quick reply!
I took the pictures (they are geotagged) in Maryland...

Hats-off to you... How can you tell a male from a female?

The females of nearly all warblers (and many other songbirds) are much less colorful (and harder to identify) than the males. That is so that they are less conspicuous on the nest and less likely to be seen by predators.

Ash-throated Flycatchers are Western birds - either this one is a stray or something else that I don't recognize.
