Tennessee Warbler
1
Nashville Warbler

Seen on the "mound", feeding in the grass with several palm warblers and common yellowthroats. Initially I noticed a small warbler with a prominent white eye ring, yellow throat, olive green back, and a chestnut crown patch. I immediately said "Nashville!". Then, after seeing so many female Common Yellowthroats in the same vicinity, I cast some doubt on my identification. Thinking back at my initial reaction and putting all the features together, I'm quite confident this was a Nashville warbler - especially the prominent white eye ring AND a chestnut/rufous patch on the top of the head.
