Close! This is a Palm Warbler. Note that the yellow is underneath the tail as well. In a Yellow-rumped, it's a more defined patch just on the rump, and the undertail is white.

Thanks for the detailed explanation!  I assume this is a female or an immature since it has a bit less yellow on the breast than I associate with adult male palm warblers.  The angle of the picture means you can't see if there that little bit of rusty cap, but perhaps that cap is seasonal anyway.

Yes the fall wardrobe is quite different. Rusty cap isn’t there. It fools me too. I took a couple of photos in different locations of him and I’m thinking ‘what’s that’. If it wasn’t for the yellow under tail I wouldn’t think it was the same bird.
