Warbler - Sask Canada

At first I thought it was a Yellow RUmped warbler (quick sight of the yellow 'armpits', but upon looking at my photos, I see no yellow rump.. Could this be a female or non breeding American Redstart (based on the yellow tail edges?)?

Thank you for any help!

Interested in learning, would the dark uppertail, dark lores and dark spots on breast not suggest 1st-summer (2cy) male?

Agree with Alan. IMHO also the wing bar is to prominent for a female typ American Redstart.

In Alberta the warblers bred in the eastern forests around May-June, in Sask I imagine its a similar case, or at least they are nearby.

I'm going to agree with young male, no wonder the face and breast looked funny.
