Golden-winged warbler?

Recommended Posts

It was spotted this afternoon in a Brooklyn backyard, about 20-30' up a 60' tree. The weather is overcast with a drizzle. It's size was between a sparrow and Robin. It jumped and flew from branch to branch for quite a while. There were two birds. Does this look like a warbler?

Thanks for the Id. Merlin Id did not give that choice, so I did not consider it. I mostly didn't like how the wings matched. The GCKI has a black band and yellow on its wing which match the photo. The GWW lacks the black band, and the yellow is closer to the head. Looking at allaboutbirds.org, I see what you mean about the GCLI having more green in its wing.
