The yellow undertail is diagnostic, no?

You are correct, but I think there is a distinction to be made between the yellow undertail coverts, which several warblers have, including Connecticut, Kentucky, MacGillivray's, and Mourning, and the underside of the tail itself, which is yellow only on the Yellow Warbler. On this bird the coverts are yellow but the underside of the tail appears to be a darker color. Maybe it is lighting or some other factor that I am overlooking. I thought, too, the face was slightly more patterned then we would see on a Yellow. That said, I'm not leaning in any other particular direction...just thought another shot might be helpful.
