Tough shot, but is this enough to ID as a yellow warbler? Taken last week in Horicon, WI.

Yes it is! Enough to ID and a Yellow Warbler.

I agree with Yellow Warbler. One of the handfull of warblers I see often.

I was surprised by a yellow warbler one day. I went to Herrick's Cove which is an area next to the Connecticut River in Vermont. I parked my car leaving the front windows open as it was a warm day. I walked away to look for birds. I returned about 10 to 15 minutes later and saw what looked like a bird in my car!! It was on the headrest for the back seat, so I went and opened the back door thinking it would fly out, but it didn't. My car has a backhatch, so I opened it and the bird flew out. That was a big surprise for me!!
