I'm leaning towards hatch-year Bay-breasted Warbler. Blackpoll should
show a bit paler in the sides of the neck as shown here <http://
The tertials are showing white outer edges as should show on Bay-
breasted and Blackpoll, but should be absent on Pine Warbler.
Aren't fall warblers fun and challenging!
