What Warbler kind

Thank you for your replys. I've seen lots of them around but maybe it's the coloring and I didn't consider this warbler.

Yes, it is always important to look at pictures of both females and males. Female warblers often get overlooked or misidentified because they are generally drabber.

Am I the only one who finds the creamy part on the chest and the streaking a bit...off? 

There are a few subspecies of Yellow-rumped so perhaps the one you are familiar with is different than the one pictured here? Also it's important to remember that sometimes colors that appear to be naturally occurring on the bird may actually come from things such as pollen stains.

I agree that this bird seems off. This is neither a myrtle or audubons. I haven’t seen adult Ssp. Hybrids, so it could be one of those. Myrtle would have black on the face, which I don’t see here, and Audubons would have a dark breast color. I’m guessing Saskatchewan is in the zone of hybridization between the two subspecies. This definitely has a lot of rumped in it. Nothing really stands out to me for it to be a hybrid with another species. I’m guessing this is a Yellow-rumped Warbler (Myrtle x Audubon). Anyone have different opinions?

This bird doesn’t fit either subspecies well. I’ve seen both quite a bit. I think a hybrid makes sense. But this is definitely an atypical bird.

Oh I didn't even think of hybrids. Yeah when I was looking at the subspecies originally I couldn't seem to decided which one it fit better which is why I didn't want to take a guess but a hybrid would explain that.
