Stumped in Alberta

I've fleetingly seen this bird in thickets at forest floor near river. Very shy, with a sharp "chip" sound of alarm. I thought a vireo or warbler of some kind, but that is not getting me to something...

UnID'd flying warbler?

I caught this warbler with landing gear pretty much by accident. He did not stick around long enough for me to get a good look at him. Anyone know who he/she is? Edmonton, Canada, taken Aug 23, 07.

Hello and ID question

Just joined this forum from Edmonton area, Canada. I saw a little guy in the river valley this morning (photo attached). Would someone help a rather amateurish IDier with this one?
