Photographed this warbler yesterday, here in Winnipeg. It has a lot to suggest its a Nashville but the head is the wrong color(not gray) and the leg color (pinkish) is wrong.

Yes, the toes can be at least somewhat brightly colored, but the other parts of the legs are dark (the tarso-metatarsal joint can just be seen to the right of the branch).  However, I would bet that with a frontal angle on this bird, the toes would look a lot darker -- we are fooled a bit by the pads of the toes being bright, which is not all that rare in Nashville.  Of course, this is also a male in high condition, and it would be much less likely (hopefully) to be confused with Common Yellowthroat.
