Spotted an odd looking bird at Wakodahatchee Sunday while out looking for the golden-winged warbler again...from the rear and on initial sighting I assumed it to be a yellow-rumped warbler due to the large yellow square at the base of the tail...but once I took a few shots and got home to look closer, I noticed a lot of white along the top of the head and just behind and below the eye. This made the ID a bit harder - but so far, consensus from others varied between cape may and yellow-rumped, with partial leucistic tendencies either way causing the white bits. Any additional help or confirmations on this odd little warbler?
