Jonny, you're right on the ones you IDd. I'm going to say northern parula on the first image and yellow-bellied flycatcher on the last.

Nice pics!

Never saw the first 2, I've saw the Redstart, but I think the last one is a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet, at least that's what the last one looks like to me.

Could be a RCK, LPCRF. It was a bit of a toss-up, but the pretty strong yellow and the shape/heaviness of the bill put me into the yellow-bellied flycatcher camp.

I would have to go with the Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. There appears to be only one wing bar, and looks really white in the photo.
