No experience with the subspecies myself but I would say it looks good for Yellow "Mangrove" Warbler.

Pretty standard fall Yellow-Rumped Warbler. Especially note the yellow patches on the shoulders of the bird, drab streaked flanks, and white eye crescents.

I would call them both Broad-Winged. Fine barring across the belly rather than the streaks and belt of Red-Tailed.

Confirm Cackling Goose - Michigan, USA

I'm thinking this is a pretty good candidate for Cackling Goose. This bird was spotted about a week ago among a flock of Canada Geese. Can anyone confirm? Thanks
