A couple of warblers in North Carolina?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I took advantage of a day off work this and 70 degree December weather to see what birds I could find along a greenway in Charlotte, NC that goes through wooded and marshy areas.   Out and about this morning were Carolina Wrens, Northern Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, Eastern Bluebirds, Chipping Sparrows, Red-Headed Woodpeckers, Hairy Woodpeckers, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, and a Blue Heron.

New to my list are the two birds in the photos below.  I have the black and white one (two photos) pegged as a Black-and-White Warbler.  Can someone please confirm or suggest otherwise?

 The other one (three photos) I am not so sure about.   He or she was pale olive / lime sorbet-colored underneath.   I am thinking maybe Pine Warbler, but would appreciate so direction on this one.

Sorry the photos aren't the greatest.

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year,

The first bird is an Eastern Phoebe.  Note the upright posture, brownish-gray color with a darker head, lack of a face pattern, relatively large head, and its behavior (sitting relatively still).

The second bird is indeed a Black-and-white Warbler.
