Small Drab Warbler, Duneiden Florida

I hate identifying birds with no significant markings. Merlin identified this little guy (taken Oct 1) as one of a half dozen warblers.

Merlin identified it as blackburnian, prairie, Tennessee, pine, or orange-crowned. I'm inclined to say orange-crowned even though they're not common in the area or possibly a Tennessee (but the color seems off) since I don't see any trace of wing bars.

Any thoughts?

Looks like a young Prairie Warbler to me.

Another vote for Prairie. Flank streaks are clearly visible as is the grey crescent under the eye.
