WOW! Didn't really believe what I was seeing. An Oporornis warbler with basically a gray head and breast. Plain olive rest of upperparts and light to medium yellow rest of underparts. The lower breast was covered with dark black markings over most of the lower breast, especially towards the center. I noted no black lores and no white eye arcs.

Finally the bird sang twice, sort of a quavery toned, quick, "jury, jury" and then a descending jumbled few notes. It was quick and less varied than I would expect from a MacGillivray's Warbler. This is the song that one generally hears on TV commercials showing a beautiful suburban scene. I've last heard the bird singing last year, several locations in Iowa.
