just when I had this bird lined up for a shot it took off; assuming it is a warbler... any ID thoughts considering the poor quality of the picture

I actually did see a live coyote but by the time I saw it and got my camera up for a shot it was down over a hill and gone into the brush. But coyote scat was everywhere.

I am not sure what kind of sparrow this is. I think both pictures are the same kind. They were all in a tree together but with distance and light conditions did not get any great pictures. any ID help appreciated.

I am going to edit this considering the comments, remove the second picture and the new ID applies only to the two birds on the left

I am thinking the one in front is a Lesser Yellowlegs and the one in back is a Greater Yellowlegs. The one in front looks smaller but if they were the same size birds should look larger... Also the one in the back has a slightly upturned bill.
