MacGillivray's Warbler

Well marked adult female or possibly imm. male seen well and heard repeatedly in a flowering rabbitbrush beside the road at the entrance. Seen by all in the party. I first picked it up by call note, then Brennan and the others, and we found it moments later. Watched at length as close as 15-20 feet. It was olive-green above with a gray hood, and white throat, yellow underparts extending all the way through the undertail coverts, brightest on undertail coverts, which extended about half way out onto the undertail. It had noticeable but not bold white eye crescents, not a complete eye-ring. Call was a fairly weak but sharp "chit", somewhat reminiscent of a House Wren.

8
Yellow-rumped Warbler (Audubon's)
