American Redstart vs drab Yellow Warbler?

Ah, yes I see! Not sure why I did not pick that up.. too many different Warblers looking too similar too me; still much to learn!

First time I ever saw a warbler (not actually that long ago) I couldn’t figure it out for the life of me! They all seemed exactly the same. But it doesn’t take very long to become familiar with their differences.

Why is this not a Tennessee Warbler? The contrast between the yellow rump and white undertail coverts is clear in the first photo. In addition, the overall coloration doesn't look like Orange-crowned to me. 

This is 100% a celata Orange-crowned with the short bill, lack of a prominent supercilium, no faint wingbars, streaking on the breast, etc.
