Looks like a Blue-winged Warbler x Golden-winged Warbler hybrid to me.  It has two yellow wingbars (indicating some Golden-winged ancestry) and it appears to have a dark eyeline.

While it's always difficult to say for sure, I'm not sure there's enough here to say it's a hybrid. The wingbars look right for a young Blue-winged in terms of extent and shape. Everything else fits Blue-winged, and both Sibley and Pyle indicate that young female Blue-winged can show yellowish wingbars. The green on the crown suggests that this is a HY female.
