    Details: At first, I thought Maggie. But then again something was off. It became clear when I got a good look at the tail which lacked the typical Maggie pattern, but was rather uniform grayish from underneath. The bird had a gray head and a yellow throat. An eye-ring or arcs were not clearly seen. There was black streaking along the entire flanks starting at the birds shoulders. Yellow underneath, I can't recall the color of the UTCs though. Back was grayish. No wing bars obvious. Chip note was off for a Maggie, more of a low level "chup"(?). And the bird was frequently bobbing/moving its tail, which I have never seen with a Maggie. The bird was seen always in good light (in the sun) as close as 10 feet. Overall observation time was probably 30 s to 1 minute. It was alone not associating with any other birds. Based on appearance I would say it was a hatch year bird.
    I am not familiar with this species so in the spur of the moment I did not look for any key ID elements.
    The only other warbler possible would be a Prairie Warbler, but the colors were way off in that bird and facial pattern also different.

    The bird was moving in the mid-level of trees in this corner of Lemon Hill Drive: 39.973149, -75.189734. If you go, check out Sedgley Dr to Girard Ave, and the surrounding areas of the Outward Bound School building.

    Will send report to PORC and based on their decision update observation.
