Hi Cesar and all,

Very cool-looking bird!

I think its overall shape (and particularly its very finely pointed bill) and 
manners suggest Orange-crowned Warbler. I also think that a MacGillivray's 
Warbler would show a thicker, blacker loral stripe.

Finally, the whitish edges to the tips of the primaries are a typical feature 
of Orange-crowned Warbler, and one that I can't recall seeing on things like 
Mourning Warbler or Common Yellowthroat, whcih MacGillivray's would be expected 
to resemble.

Dear All,

I have posted the original images on flicker.  I have not messed with the 
photos except in increasing their sharpness.  I can see how this could be an 
orange-crowned warbler, however I remember seeing a grey hood that extended 
quite a bit, Carry Laben and I immediately thought Mourning W until we looked 
at the photos and thought MacGillivray's.  Memory is fickle though when it 
comes to details, I don't tend to just trust mine without evidence.  The hood, 
if it is real is most notable in the 2nd and 7th link below.

Thank you all, it's too bad no one else has been able to see it.  I attempted 
to find it on Monday morning, but there was active construction in the location 
where it was found, and most of the snow in the park had melted, giving this 
bird and all the other birds found in the same spot ample opportunity to find 
food elsewhere.

César

Una tarde la princesa  vio una estrella aparecer;  la princesa era traviesa  y 
la quiso ir a coger.
La quería para hacerla  decorar un prendedor,  con un verso y una perla,  una 
pluma y una flor.
Las princesas primorosas  se parecen mucho a ti;  cortan lirios, cortan rosas,  
cortan astros. Son así.
-A Margarita Debayle (To Margarita Debayle) by Ruben Dario
