Sept. 13, 2020.  Central Lexington County, central SC.  Bird was active in dense mixed woods above a clear creek that drains adjoining athletic fields.  Bird was quite active in dense shrubs 4 to 6 feet off the ground, mostly within 20 feet of creek.

I see a brownish crown and back of head, charcoal cheek patch, dark-over-pink bill,  olive back shading to slightly lighter green tail, bright yellow underparts, pink legs, no wing bars (or their hidden by a branch in both shots), no streaking on breast or underparts, no or minimal weak eye ring (could be washed out by the light).

Thanks.  I'm not hung up on the age or gender as long as I have the species correct.

I had four warblers today I couldn't immediately place.  Two turned out to be unfamiliar fall or immature plumages, and the other two were birds I already had but didn't remember having seen them before.  Still a great day anyway - two new yard birds, and photo lifers of three others.  Beats being at work!
