warbler near Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

I made my first foray into New Mexican birding this morning. I hiked up a piney canyon east of Santa Fe. Pretty high, starting at over 8000' and going higher. I got exactly one shot of this warbler before it took off. As usual for my posts, not much to work with!

I don't really know what warblers I'd expect to see up here . . . help?!

Thanks Joe -- that's a perfect match! I was worried the picture would be too poor to make an ID, but I guess if the bird is striking enough, then a feeble shot can do the trick! This seems quite unambiguous to me.

I can't get the pics to work on my comp, but judging by your location and the habitat, graces seems like a good match.
