Kentucky Warbler

I believe that is an adult female. All bright yellow below; Mostly darkish-medium olive above. No wingbars. Relatively short tail and long undertail coverts. Crown slightly duskier than rest of upperparts but not really black and almost no gray feathers seen. Forecrown was slightly blacker still. Black lores to eye and then below eye, and then connecting to black going below the eye in a thinnish line and surrounding the rear end of a yellow supercilium that extending around and below the eye in a thin spectacle - not quite connecting at the front. A bit of blackish from below eye extending a bit down the rear of the lower auricular but overall not much black on face at all. Lower face and throat all bright yellow. Stayed on the ground or low in branches in relatively thick branchy area. In shaded area near ditch with water in it. Call heard once, probably was a somewhat loud "cherk". Did not see bird till after call was heard and can't confirm that what we heard was this bird.
