    I think it’s a Mourning Warbler for two reasons:

    1. The under-tail coverts are long – not quite long enough for Connecticut but too long for MacGillivray’s.

    2. The obvious – MacGillivray’s Warbler has never been adequately documented to occur in the state of Ohio.

    The field marks also indicate this is not a Connecticut Warbler, a statistically much more likely bird than MacGillivray’s.

    Yes, the more I look at it, the more I think it is a mourning as well. Thanks for your help!

    does it lack the white eye crescents?

    After further research I have changed the identification to a mourning warbler.
