OrangeCrowned Warbler?

Recommended Posts

Good  morning, All.  Amongst the usual Goldfinches, Cardinals, Wrens, Chickadees, Doves, and Titmice at my feeders this morning, there was this unknown.  Could this be an Orange-Crowned Warbler?  It came readily to the feeder & suet.  I did not see yellow on its flanks or elsewhere.  It appeared overall olive/drab & has a faint hint of an eyeline.  Sorry for the underexposure and subsequent lightening.  I am posting both the original and the lightened version. Thank you all.  ?

How can you rule out Tennessee?

So, I wondered about this also, after seeing your post.  In another shot, there does appear to be yellow in the undertail coverts, consistent with Orange-Crowned.  I'm curious, though, if there are other means to separate the two, say, if you only had the one shot that did not show the coverts.  Pic attached.
