I don't know whether or not it is a Pine Warbler but I do know a nice photo when I see one! :)

This looks like a first-year female Yellow-rumped, but I can't figure out what's up with that yellow patch on the belly. The nearly invisible supercilium rules out most of the warblers, and the amount of streaking below rules out Pine. The face pattern doesn't look right for Cape May, and now I'm running out of options.

Streaking looks fine, pointing to Cape May, plus I can see yellow in the throat and supercilium. That plus the belly all points to young and/or female Cape May.

Okay, after checking Dunn and Garrett, I can see Cape May -- I was trying to find the markings behind the auriculars, but apparently young females don't necessarily show them.
