Juvi Magnolia Warbler? Central Mississippi

Recommended Posts

This bird was seen with some Magnolia Warblers.  But this guy doesn't have the under tail or stripes.  Not a female Common Yellow Throat because not yellow vent.  Head is too grey for Yellow Throated Vireo and Warbler.  What do you think?

This looks like a female/immature Northern Parula. Note the short tail and thin bill. While adults males have a blue-gray back with an olive patch in the center, bright yellow throat, black and chestnut band, and white eye crescents, females and immatures are paler overall, have green edged primaries and secondaries, and lack the chestnut band.

Magnolia Warblers would have a thin, complete eyering, more yellow on the underparts, and less distinct wingbars.

Cool! Yeah, that's a Northern Parula. Magnolias would have a white undertail "dipped in black paint," with about half of it black. This is a diagnostic pattern for Magnolias which is not on this bird.
