This is a palm warbler. Large numbers of them spend the winter in Florida. Notice the yellow rump and under tail.

Agreed.

Is it starting to molt? Maybe wishful thinking for the spring...

It’s not cold down there!

THANK you, all! My shhhh guess was a palm warbler though befuddled with the speckled plumage (a barely "PT birder"...)... grateful for the clarification and enlightenment as to the leucistic condition... MUCH appreciate your time and expertise!
