Warbling or Philadelphia Vireo? Or Tennessee Warbler? Nashville, TN 26 Sept 21 (1 Viewer)

Seeing the obvious white eyebrow, dark eye stripe, white undereye, looks to have yellow throat and yellow sides. Constrast considering typical IDs of Warbling and Philadelphia: Has the yellow throat of Philadelphia (contrast with the white throat of Warbling) but the yellow sides of Warbling (contrasted with the yellow of breast of Philadelphia). The tail looks pretty short, so for that detail im leaning more towards Philadelphia.

Also seeing the white "shoulder" indicative of a Tennessee Warbler with very very similar markings otherwise.

White undertail coverts and short tail all good for Tennessee so agree with qwerty5 and Microtus. This is definitely a Tennessee.
