Sorry, I wasn't sure, did you answer your own question? For anyone with the same question, the Prothonotary looks similar in the face, but the underside turns white halfway down the belly. Additionally the Prothonotary does not show yellow in the wings but rather a blue/gray. On the Yellow warbler, the underside is completely yellow, and the yellow tail and yellow undertail coverts is unique to U.S. Warblers.

Thank you! Yeah, I kinda answered my own question when comparing two pictures in my guide. But your description is actually WAY better and much more helpful, so thank you so much!
