I’ll check this out more in detail when I get home, but something looks off for townsends to me. I’ve seen hundreds of them and, it dosnt seem right. Why not BTNW

Certainly not a Black-throated Green Warbler, they never show yellow below the head. Can't be a pure Townsend's either, among other things that black bib is far to expansive. 

I like Townsend's x Black-throated Green, great find! I'd get this reported ASAP, there's a lot of people who are going to want to see this.

Ben ... unfortunately, it wasn't from this year. Covid has given me time to shift through unidentified birds. Can you explain what you mean by Townsend's x Black-throated Green?

He means it is a Townsend's x Black-throated Green Warbler (hybrid).

This almost certainly  a Black-throated Green Warbler x Townsends. What that means is it is a hybrid, with one parent being a black throated green and another being a townsends. There are no records East of Texas of this hybrid on eBird. I’m not sure if you would want to send it in to the provincial records commute because it’s a hybird, if others agree with the ID.
