Yellow-rumped Warbler? - Eastern Ontario, Canada (1 Viewer)

Shot yesterday in eastern Ontario, Canada, I think this was a yellow-rumped warbler. Is there enough of the bird showing to confirm or correct that ID?

The undertail feathers would make us choose the yellow warbler with the help of this quick guide from Cornell.

However, the undertail is not really yellow. Plus we would then have a very difficult time justifying the eyebrow, steaking, and lack of uniformity.

Yellow-rumped for me, but I'm unfamiliar with Eastern warblers

It looks good for Yellow-rumped. The weird patch of yellow on the belly is misleading, I assume it's just a leaf reflection.

I first thought Yellow-rumped but then I read Yellow Warbler and I got quite confused but the more image sharing on Google I did, I'm settling with Yellow-rumped Warbler.

If you look at these tail pattern guides from Cornell or Dunn and Garret's, Cape-MAy and Yellow-rumped are compatible with this bird. The underside looks very yellow, which could suggest Cape may, but that's because of the low sun early or late in the day, and, as qwwety says, possible reflection from leaves. . Everything else leads towards Yellow-rumped.
