I left Miami on a cruise on the 20/10/11 heading for the Panama Canal about 50 miles in to the journey approx 500 birds landed on the ship it was not until the next morning we realised what had happened, there were healthy,injured & dead birds all over the ship. They ranged from Warblers, Cuckoos & Soras which are a Rail type bird it look like they were migrating from Central America to South America, we dont know if they were exausted, blown off coarse or both, but there was a peregrine Falcon picking off any that were struggling. There were a number of birds that I could not ID mainly Warblers which has never been my strong point (See Attached Photo's), any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nr 1 & 2: I am not sure but suggest Dendroica pinus for the first & D. palmarum for nr 2.
Nr 3: Geothlypis trichas.

Hi Karwin, & thank you for your quick response I will post another photo of Nr1 Nr2 to see if it makes it any easier. I will be posting more photos of other birds that I could not ID over the next few days if you or anyone else can help I would be very grateful

Seeing coverts' stripes I would say the yellow bird is Dendroica discolor (prairie warbler).

...and I must add that my experience & books only cover area north of Mexican border. The first of these last ones looks just like not-exactly Vermivora ruficapilla or Geothlypis philadelphia, and might be some Central American species. The last one is a female tanager, by wing and bill colour I would guess (If this was of North American fauna) Piranga flava (hepatic tanager).
