From January 2018, Pasadena, CA - Audubon's Yellow rumped Warbler?

I am thinking this too. The bill seems too dark to be a young yellowthroat. Also, if that yellow in the first picture is under the bird's tail (I think it is?) then I would say Virginia's

Looks good for Yellow-rumped. Virginia's have a more distinct eyering.

I don’t think it’s Yellow-rumped/Audubon’s as it doesn’t have any yellow on its head besides the throat. It also appears more drab and brown, while Yellow-rumped are gray or black and streaky.

As has already been stated, it's a Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Virginia's has a much different look overall- in the field it's very reminiscent of a Lucy's Warbler, i.e. silvery gray overall with little facial pattern and no streaking. Also, it's definitely not going to be found in California especially during January, and especially at low elevation.

As plain as it is, Virginia's Warbler is definitely one of my favorite birds.

My apologies. I totally missed that the original poster said January. Makes the chances of it being Virginia’s warbler next to nothing.
