Wilson's Warbler??

Recommended Posts

This bird is constantly on the move in this tree, making it difficult for a novice like me to get a good photo. It is small, with a yellowish breast and I would best describe it as having a light olive back.  The tree is located in dryland wheat country in a rural area in Lincoln county, WA. It has been showing up in the morning hours for the past couple of weeks. My best guess is possibly a Wilson's Warbler, but I'm not sure if its behaviors match. I hope you can help even with this poor photo.

Agree with the ID for the reasons mentioned; in addition, the behavior you describe fits, and I often see Wilson's on lower branches or small shrubs as opposed to high up in the treetops, and it appears that is the position of your bird.
