Palm Warbler (Western)

Found by birders on the Sunday bird walk earlier in the day. I relocated it a short while later. It was foraging close to the ground among Russian olives and other riparian vegetation. Identified as a Western Palm Warbler by: bright rufous cap; bold white supercilium above dark face; brown upperparts with heavy streaking on the back; whitish underparts with heavy brown streaking; and short brown tail with bright yellow undertail coverts. It constantly pumped its tail while foraging.
