Warbler? from Padre Island Texas

I think that picture is mislabeled.  All the pictures of North American mesquites I can find have long clusters of pale flowers. 

I don't know a thing about plants, but the photo and the bird is from South Padre Island.  took it myself a few days ago.

Thanks for temporarily changing the forum for us, Charlie.  I think it's probably Huisache or Sweet Acacia, Vachellia farnesiana, which is found in south Texas and blooms at this time of year.  Pictures at the CalPhotos site have reliable IDs.

It's nice to see the flowers as well as the bird.
