Fall warbler - prarie or palm?

Recommended Posts

Taken this morning in south-central PA


this shouldn't be this hard ...


My first thought in the field was Cape May, but this bird carries the yellow all the way back from the breast.  Prarie was / is possible, but I don't see even weak wingbars, which leads me to Palm?


Gotta love Fall Migration

The extensively brown upperparts rule out Prairie. Also, the brightest part of the underparts is on the under-tail coverts, which are generally the least-yellow part on Prairie. Finally, Palm is something of a substantial warbler, while Prairie is a wee little thing.
