A Pine Warbler? It just doesn't look like a Pine Warbler to me too lean and delicate, but not sure what else it could be. Female Northern Parula? Seems to big and bulky for that one. Yellow-throated vireo? I have 3 pics.

I'm guessing Tennessee Warbler on your Lily, but it's a total guess.

Ummm, I was looking at the marking around the eye. The light 'eyebrown' on this bird. If indeed mine is Tennesse Warbler, I've got another lifer. Thanks Elphy.

That orange lower mandible is pretty distinctive for Northern Parula. It fits with the broken eye ring, the wing bars, the bluish-gray upperparts with the yellow wash, and the little dab of reddish on the upper breast.

Agree with Northern Parula on Elphaba's bird.
