Bachman's Warbler?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I hope no one spewed coffee all over their keyboard. But this one has me stumped. I don't know if it's even a warbler

Today, Richmond County, GA. I thought possibly Hooded or maybe Wilson's, but it doesn't look quite right for either. All the photos were cropped and lightened to some degree. Thanks.

Hooded Warbler. 

Bachman’s Warbler is almost certainly extinct, largely due to destruction of wintering grounds in the Caribbean/West Indies. 

The undertail pattern, leg color, bill shape etc all seem consistent with Hooded to me
