Yes, this looks like an adult female Yellow Warbler. Note the round head, black eye, and stout bill. While males have a greenish back and chestnut streaks on the breast and belly, females are yellow overall with a yellow-green back. You can differentiate this warbler from all other North American Warblers due to the unique yellow undertail.

How are you ruling out immature at this time of year?

I thought that this individual was too bright and contrasty for an immature, but there is a lot of variation in immature Yellow Warblers, some ranging from brown, to gray, to yellowish. So yeah, I guess this individual could definitely be immature. Thanks for pointing that out.
