Bird observed was a Warbler. The most striking plumage feature was the contracting black and yellow pattern of the bird's face when the bill was pointed at me. The throat was pure yellow with black that ran from the base of the bill, under and behind the eye and then down edge of the throat (both sides) to about where the wing shoulder began thus, a sharp black/yellow face/throat pattern. The eye was noticeable, due to a somewhat narrow yellow stripe, beginning at the base of the bill, running above the eye and extended a short distance behind it (kind of a "spectacle" look). The throat, breast, belly were yellow; sides were a yellow-olive. The upper parts were a uniform, solid olive color with no marking or wingbars. Crown appeared a somewhat darker olive. Other then the face pattern, the bird's plumage was pretty plain with no outstanding contrasts. Was not able to see the undertail coverts during the observation period, never saw the back end of the bird. The bird's tall was relatively short compared to its overall length. Bill appears to be mostly dark.

The bird never move very far above the ground (perhaps 3-4 foot at the most). Landed on the ground a couple of times; moved about in short distances. The bird seemed to have the habit of leaning forward, head downward and tail elevated. This behavior provided great views of the crown, back and tail, which was short. Also, when in this position, the bird appear to be pretty "chunky," That is, its side noticeable protruded from the head.
