The Parula challenge

Recommended Posts

Please help identify this small bird. It was captured on the Bruce Peninsula Aug. 29 at 9:30 a.m.

At first I thought Nashville Warbler but I'm seeing some orange on the sides of the throat which made me think Parula...

Picture quality is obviously not great. These guys are too fast for me to get a great shot!

Thanks for your help!

First pic look clearly Parula to me. Low contrast to throat/malar, incomplete eyering.


The second pic looks like a Nashville from what I can see. A crop might help. Eyering is complete and it lacks the wingbars of a parula plus the bright green/yellow patch on the mantle.
