Lightbulb Can anyone ID this... warbler?? (Acadia Natl. Park, Maine)

Saw this guy in low trees in the middle of a freshwater bog. There were a pair of them and they would make short flights from the ground/wetlands amongst the cat-tails to the low branches (~ 1 meter high) of the tree.

Sorry for the poor quality - it was overcast and late in the afternoon and I didn't have a tripod.

Common Yellowthroat is about the only possibility; mostly olivish brown with yellow throat and undertail coverts. Habitat is a good clue as well.

Thanks all! I know why I wasn't thinking Yellowthroat. I didn't see the obvious black mask of the male and figured it must be something else - call it male chauvinism
