These two photos are from September of 2018.  I am reasonably certain I took them in Laurel, MD.  Is this a Pine Warbler?  Thanks in advance for your help.

The photos load for me.  I can confirm the bird is perched in a Bradford Pear.  :classic_biggrin:  Orange-crowned Warbler?

The lack of breast streaking concerns me.

Breast streaking is variable in Pine Warblers. More reliable field marks include a broken white eyering, white wingbars, and a rather thick bill. Some immatures are dull brown like this one.

Thanks for all the input.  Pine's have so many looks that identifying them always gives me problems.
