Yellow Warbler? What type and is it immature?

Recommended Posts

Where: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

When: August 16 at 9:13 am MST

What: Two yellow warblers drinking at our bird bath

I suspect that these are immature Wilson's Warblers since we've had that species in our yard before. I apologize for the high-noise in the pictures, but I was shooting from inside the house and didn't have my telephoto lens. This is the second day they've come for a visit. They only use the bird bath to take a quick drink, and then vanish high into the trees.

I believe this is a Tennessee warbler due to the white patch under the tail, but I’m not 100% confident with warblers to completely rule out Orange-crowned Warbler, so I’d wait for a second opinion.

Wilsons warblers wouldn’t have the line dash through the eye. 

Hello from Calgary as well! Hope I haven’t missed too much warbler action. I also think I have the same bird bath as you

Thank you so much @Aaron! I've looked at more pictures and I think you're right that it is a Tennessee Warbler. Something has to account for the white patch under the tail!

Good to meet a fellow Calgarian on this forum. In addition to these two yellow fuzzballs, we had several Grackles and Pine Siskins in the yard today. Very busy day at the feeder and the bath (had to refill several times after the Grackles took turns going for a swim).
