I'm going nuts trying to identify this bird (spent 3 days going back and forth). It's been hanging around for the past week. It's solitary. It's feeding on insects (we call them skeeter eaters down here in Houston, Texas). It's shy.

I've been back and forth in every one of my bird books trying to identify. My latest guess is Orange Crowned Warbler.

It has a yellow undertail, drab yellow olive streaks on the breast, It appears to have a broken eye-ring.

Can anyone please help me. If it is an Orange Crowned Warbler, are those that common in Houston, TX?

Thank you!

Warblers can be tough, but that does look like an Orange Crowned Warbler.

It's driving me crazy not to be able to identify this thing. First, I thought Kinglet, then said nope, not a Kinglet. Then Pine Warbler, but gave up on that too.

I'm 99% sure it is an Orange-crowned Warbler. They can be tough little things to ID since they don't really have any markings, just drab all over.

Pine Warblers have white wing bars and more of a yellow eye ring.

This is an Orange-crowned Warbler as previously stated 'cept I'm 100% positive.

That's the kind of certainty I was hoping to hear! Thank you
