This is the only shot I got ... Merlin app says Chestnut-Sided Warbler. 

Big Hollow Recreation Area, SE Iowa, September 6 of this year. (Ebird shows Chestnuts have been spotted there in the past.)

Your help in confirming is appreciated.

Thanks!

Those yellow spots by the vent I believe are diagnostic?

No, they're not. Black-throated Green has a greeny-yellow vent strap. The depicted bird has flank streaking, which rules out Chestnut-sided. I'd go with Black-throated Green.

Wow. Okay, still a LIFER! (Unchecked Chestnut and added this one.) 

Thanks for the clarification.
