Hello everyone!

We clicked this leaf-warbler at Salkhala, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan close to Indian border in the east. It was with many Western Crowned Warblers in the area.

We are not confident of its ID, due to it faintly buffish double wing-bars, greener color and bill size and colour. We think it could be a potential Blyth's Leaf Warbler (P. reguloides). Any help with the ID would be greatly appreciated.

Attaching single image. If found more, will attach soon.

Location: Salkhala, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan
Date: 5 May 2024

In my opinions, seems better for a western crowned warbler. Seems exceptionally pale undersided and blyth's tend to have a more greenish tinged underside. Blyth's also seems to have a more broad and yellowish super while this bird seems to have a more thin super which seems to only have a vague yellowish tinge, which seems to consistent to the book illustrations as well as internet images. Though I can see a case for either. Please post more images if you have any.

Edit- Upper mandible appears to be brownish.
