Tiny Bird ID, but no picture


Recommended Posts

I unfortunately wasn’t able to get a picture of the bird. I spotted it in my yard around 6:00 pm today, in West Michigan. 

It was tiny, and darted around in the trees very quickly, poking around as if looking for something. Teeny tiny little bill. Grayish/greenish on top. The breast looked white or pale gray, but shadows made it hard to tell. Undertail coverts were also white. It had a small yellow stripe or patch in the middle of its forehead in between two black stripes. There were markings of some kind on the wings, but I couldn’t see them clearly due to the bird’s constant movement. The wings also appeared to have a faint yellow tinge.

I have an pretty good guess as to what it was, but I’d like to hear what some people here think. Any ideas help.
