I saw this bird in Lido Beach NY yesterday. It looks like a Pine Warbler to me, except that the beak looks to large and slightly curved at the tip. Maybe it's the light and angle that makes the beak look large for the bird.

That is a Orchard Oriole.

Any chance the bird was trying to get nectar from these tubular flowers?  Orioles love nectar.  Many birds have misleading names (like 'Orchard' Oriole, for example) but Pine Warblers have one of the most accurate names in terms of environment.  Pines are almost strictly protein consumers - insects, suet, peanuts, etc.

I think so. There is an arched wooden trellis a few feet away covered with the trumpet vines and flowers. Someone reported a hummingbird feeding on the flowers a few days ago (which is what I was watching for).
