1
Tennessee Warbler

Saw a Vermivora that appeared like a very bright Orange-crowned. I started looking for details on what I assumed was a lutescens OCWA when I noticed that there was no dusky streaking on the breast. Further the undertail coverts and center belly were white rather than yellow. Upperparts were a mostly plain light olive though the wings and especially the primaries were slightly darker. A yellow supercilium, contrasted strongly with the olive crown and darkish line through eye. A bright yellow, ill-defined, lower eye arc contrasted somewhat with duskier olive auriculars. Underparts, except as described above were a light yellow.
