Which warbler? Moab, UT, USA

Hi, all.

This little bird was seen May 14, this year in my front yard. About the size of most other warblers I've seen. I wish I had a better picture to offer.

Thanks for any help!

Katie

KenM - Thanks! That's what I was thinking, but we are slightly outside its range. However, stranger things have happened...

Lucy's for me, too.

The only other possibility for me was a drab first-year Yellow Warbler. However, that should have pale edging in the wings and should not have such clean white undertail coverts.

Ebird has many records for Lucy's Warbler from the Moab area, so it is probably not all that strange, and Lucy's are wanderers: there are many records from far outside it usual range.
