    Taken last weekend. Not a particularly great image..wrong side of the branch..shadows. Warbler size and fall warbler migration period here in eastern Missouri.
    This is the best shot I have of the wings. Appears to have a couple of white wing bars. I'm guessing first year female of some warbler species? Anyone have a
    guess?

    I am by no means an expert but I wonder if this is an immature male pine warbler?
    You might try posting this in the bird ID forum.

    You may be right on the Pine Warbler. I didn't realize there was an ID forum. It must be hidden in some sub menu.

    The tab is under "resources". Just go to the general forum home page.

    This strikes me as a hatch-year Bay-breasted Warbler, a fall bird quite similar to both Pine Warbler and Blackpoll Warbler. Among other marks, Pine has a longer tail and Blackpoll usually has more streaking on the flanks. Hence my suggested of Bay-breasted. Wouldn't bet my life on it as it can be a tough ID for even experienced birders, but I think it sounds reasonable.

    I believe that Dorian is correct. Blackpolls have yellow feet. First fall Pine has a dusky not white belly. All point to bay-breasted.

    Thanks for the help. Now that I've looked at a few more Bay-breasted Warbler images, I would agree. Sweet, even though not the greatest, it's still my first image of one.
