by the range....would not expect this to be a Nelson. Also does not "appear" to have the grey median crown stripe of a Nelson (juvenile would not have the whitish belly that this bird has

Thanks for the reply...  specifically, this was at a place called Pleasure House Point where we get the both species each migration and some stay through the winter--of the two, the Nelson's is the more commonly found species.
