Today McDuffie County, GA. It looks like a Yellow-rumped Warbler except that it is so very yellow on the underside and throat. It looked even brighter in the field. I thought it was bright Pine Warbler at first. And what are the dark feathers under the yellow feathers? Any thoughts?

Thanks, I thought on a Pine the bill would be black and a little larger. The face does look good for a Pine as does the undertail.

Not saying that your bird had a brood patch.  It's just parting its feathers.

Thanks. Interesting about the brood patch in general. I had never heard of that before.

This bird certainly doesn’t have a brood patch for two reasons: 1) It’s a male, and 2) It’s December. I agree with @The Bird Nuts that this is just fluffed up feathers, which is common.

Do you think the bill is okay for a Pine?

Yes, the bill looks fine for Pine -short and thick. I don't think the bit of pale coloring means anything. Pine Warblers are quite variable overall.
