I just woke up but I'll take a stab at it.

Yellow Warbler?

I'm tempted to say a female goldfinch, but it looks too fat and the beak is kinda long. You're probably right, pelletory.

~Kris... so NOT a bird expert, lol. ;P

Pine Warbler. One of the few warblers that winters in the southern States.

I thought it might have been a pine warbler but I was not sure since it is the first I ever saw. I supose they have always been around but so many birds look alike until you start looking at them close-up. This winter was the first time I noticed a white throated sparrow or chipping sparrows. Thanks for the identification.

The beak is important to notice. That is not a seed eater (finch, sparrow) beak-it's too delicate. It's a bug beak!

Pine warbler - no doubt about it. They're regular winter birds here in GA. Probably the same in MS.
