Confusing warbler

Recommended Posts

Oct 8 in western Montana.  Looking firstly at the tail pattern (what's left of the tail anyhow), the closest match appears to be Palm Warbler, but few other markings support this.  Yellow underneath but with white vent area.  Note the yellow patches on the chin and amongst behind the eye.  Orange-crowned with an odd tail?

Looks like an Orange-crowned to me. Broken eye ring, yellow undertail coverts, no apparent wing bars, short dark eyeline, thin unmarked tail (which appears to be missing some feathers) all lead me to that ID. The apparent bar on the tail looks like a shadow or a twig showing through in the first two pics.
