My first post ... I was only able to get one photo of this bird. I saw it in Tobermory on May 22, 2020 in the cedars around our cottage along with several others that I have been able to identify with various resources.

I'm wondering if it could be a female Northern Parula. The apparent lack of eye-ring / spectacles and dark beak have me stumped.

Thanks for any help.

With the yellow concentrated only in the throat like that, along with the absence of an eye ring I think that this is most likely a Common Yellowthroat in unusual lighting.

Thank you Sneat. I know the lighting was far from optimal and with only one image I was having difficulty.

Welcome to WhatBird, @dje. While I know that there is a Tobermory in Ontario, I'm not sure that it's the only Tobermory in North America. It's always a good idea to include the province/state along with the city/region when asking for an ID. It helps avoid confusion and directs everyone in the right direction. 🙂

Rookie Mistake ... Sorry 😕

Yup ... my bad. I'll be more complete with my location next time. 😔
