Small NY bird, yellow head

Recommended Posts

This bird from the woods of eastern New York has a yellow head/breast and two white wingbars. It's roughly warbler sized, and was flitting around in the pine trees. I have two possibilities in mind but don't want to bias the reader. Can anyone confirm the identity of the bird?

I am pretty confident.  The 4th photo (of the face) especially looks like a Pine Warbler.  Yellow-throated Vireos not only have larger bills, they have larger eyes and a more contrasting face pattern.  Your bird also appears to have orange feet which rules out vireos (which have blue feet).
