With that yellow body and black cap, this is a male Wilson’s Warbler.

Thanks. I thought the cap wasn’t black enough and the body not yellow enough so I convinced myself it must be something other than a Wilson’s.

Yeah, now that I think of it, it might be a female/young male.

It is an adult female, which have partial caps in the two western subspecies. Immature males have full caps in their first fall, though with wide yellow tips on the rear feathers.
