Warbler Id please

Yes, I know ..it's another Yellow coloured one :-) ..we have Wilson's Warblers, Yellow Warblers and Orange Crowned Warblers that can all be very very similar - especially in their Fall colouring....

Being a glutton for punishment, I'd venture Wilson's because of the dark auricular area, the prominent supercilium and the clean-breasted look of it (as opposed to Orange-crowned, which is plainer-faced, has faint breast streaking, and a split eyering). Wouldn't think it a Yellow because of the strong eyebrow and lack of streaking. But this is just my impression. Awaiting a flogging from the experts.

LOL, Jan, I only say that because I'm usually wrong on internet photo IDs, and the flogging comes from my subjective perspective -- most assuredly not because you and our other resident experts haven't been anything but extremely helpful, educational, and above all non-judgemental when it comes to debating the field marks of any given bird.
