Hi all,

Seen in the CO mountains yesterday. I immediately thought this was a potential Black-throated Green due to the muted facial pattern and white underparts. Although not entirely evident in the photo, the yellow did not extend below the throat. Thoughts? Thanks!

I would call this a female/immature Townsend’s Warbler. The cheek patch and crown are far too bold for a Black-throated Green, and Black-throated Green don’t live in your range. I understand what you are saying about the pale throat, but this might have to do with the fact that this bird could still be pretty young.
