more ID issues

Here are some left-over ID issues from earlier this week. Any suggestions?

This one caught my eye because of the long reed it's dragging. Click on the picture to see a larger version. American Coot maybe? -- but Coots don't have eye rings.

At first I thought this was a Cowbird, but the head didn't seem brown enough, particularly in the next shot.

This one has me stymied.
