Magnolia Warbler  1     Thought I had a YRWA at first as the early morning sun made everything look yellow.  When it moved into the shade it was obvious that it was bright yellow on the throat, chest, and flanks.  The belly and undertail were white.  Prominent black streaks on the flanks.  White also obvious in tail as bird fluttered between perches.  Head was all gray with a small white eye-ring.    Two narrow white wingbars.  Looked most like the nonbreeding adult male shown in Sibley.  Bird was as close as about 15 feet away.
