Oporornis warber?-Update

Yesterday morning, I spotted a very cool warbler in Kenny Park. He was singing his head off in grapevines and box-elders only 20 feet or so off the ground. This evening, Megan and I saw him again, and I managed to capture some video of his sound. I have no idea if this was the same bird as yesterday, but my hunch is that it is, since he was in the same spot. My field observations were fairly simple: Gray head, white eyering, olive wings, yellow underbelly. No black lines or striping to be seen. Here is the video.

Thanks to Jim McCormac, this bird has now been identified as a Kentucky Warbler.
