More MOURNING WARBLER pics

In the pics on the earlier post and in the top pic, it is clear that this bird has bright yellow plumage on it's underparts and a dark gray hood with no visible eye arcs. The upperparts are olive green and it has a short tail. When enlarged further by clicking on each pic it is possible to see the blackish lores and the darker black coloration on the bottom of the hood forming what Birds of North America online aptly called a black 'bib.' Again, I have not edited these pics, other than cropping to enlarge, in order to preserve coloration and shading--since this species likes dense vegetation, the areas it was in were very shaded so the pics are dark.
