NYC (10/18/20) - Sorry, I still can't tell these apart.  At least I got a couple with the feet showing.

I might have seen two, the first photo being the first one.  There were other small birds nearby, so when I saw two, I thought they might both be Warblers, but I don't really know. 

Do the pale stripes indicate an Immature or Juvie?

(These photos are as taken.)

Once again, thanks much for your input.

Sure, blue feet can look grayish in the shade.  Below I took the colors directly off of photos of these birds' feet in the sun.


The color on the right looks more orange to me. 😉

I don't know why people say Blackpolls have yellow feet because they're clearly orange to me.  🙃

It really depends on what one means by "feet" and the color is variable due to both age and sex of the bird. Many immature Blackpolls have only the toes being yellow or orange, with the rest of the "foot" being dark, often black.

Here is a good example of a Blackpoll with minimal strong color on the feet and with that color being yellow (perhaps with a touch of orange).
