Wondering which of Bay-breasted, Blackpoll or Pine Warbler this is, photographed at Shirley's Bay today.

Undertail not white, so I reckon Blackpoll can be excluded. Tough between the other two; tentative preference for Bay-breasted from the strongly contrasting wing pattern.

Bay-breasted for me, pp even with foreshortening (2nd image) appears equal to tertials.

I wouldn't expect the combination of completely unstreaked head and underparts with suddenly streaked back on any Pine Warbler. Comfortable with Bay-breasted here.
