Looks like a Nashville Warbler, to me! ;-)

Andrea, check the throat. It's gray, not yellow. ;~)

Alright, alright. You got me! :-) Here I was all proud of myself for IDing it right off the bat. Haha! Man, I still have a lot to learn.

Male Connecticut Warbler?

Parus said...

CONW is a good guess. :-)
This bird displays faint eye arcs though. Not a complete eye ring. Macgilivray's would have prominent eye arcs rather than faint so that leaves only one Oprornis warbler. Mourning. The light gray coloring leads me to think that the bird is female.

I could be wrong, there were a couple weird looking Oprornis warblers seen recently. I think it is a Mourning though.

Wow. Based on the pictures in my field guide, I didn't even consider Mourning Warbler. The photos of the female in my book look totally different than yours.

Very nice find though, and great pictures! =)
