Guys, this one is really tough, at least it appears that way. I am getting emails every other day from different people from NY Brooklyn Ebird observatory, telling me that is not bird that i posted. So, can all of you, please send me your thoughts/knowledge, so maybe this way i will get final "decision" what bird it is. Little bit of help. Bird didn't hop, it was walking, so Common Yellowthroat is out. So is Nashville Warbler, they are never on the ground. The rest of it i will leave it to your knowledge. Thank you all!

5-0, 6-0! Seems to me that all of you had no doubt about being Connecticut and no one even bought Mourning into picture, except Avery and that was just to make it comparison. That's what i had on my ebird report and it will stay that way, no matter what that gent on ebird thinks about. And he thought it was Mourning Warbler. Thank you all!

Is it wrong to say that the incomplete eye ring (towards the front edge) on the pictured bird seems to fit better with a female immature Mourning though? (I did actually like the Connecticut ID already here, FYI, but just seeing why not perhaps from others)

Well shoot. That’s hard to argue with. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a MOWA with that much of an eye ring, but that photo does fit better.

This bird's eye ring is incomplete and it has a yellow throat, not a buffy one. Structurally, this bird feels much better for Mourning Warbler to me. I believe your reviewer is correct.

Where did you see this bird? The forum asks that people put date and location somewhere in your post.

Now what? I am almost back to square 1. 6-3 Connecticut vs. Mourning Warbler. Who do i listen?

Remember, there will be some birds you or we can't identify.  I'm not saying this bird is one of them, just pointing out it happens.   If you're not sure who to listen to, or if you're not comfortable with a consensus ID,  you can always mark the bird as 'Warbler sp.'
