AZ Warbler? ID help needed

I photographed this bird this afternoon at my pond in SE AZ. Looks like some kind of female warbler but I can't figure out what.

Thanks

Larry

Have you considered Audubon's (Yellow-rumped) Warbler?

Yes I agree a very VERY washed out Yellow-rumped Warbler. A trace of the facial pattern is visible as are the yellow sides of the breast.

Yes, I see it now. I just couldn't put it all together at first.

Thanks

A very washed-out YRW indeed, but the truly weird thing to me is that posture, (especially in the second photo) neck-stretching like some kind of passerine mini-bittern.

He probably caught site of or heard the Sharpie that Larry has visiting his pond!
