I am pretty sure this is a Black-throated Green Warbler, but I know fall warblers are tricky for novices. I have thought a few posted here were BTGN and they were IDed different. North Central Massachusetts September.
Also, as it should be my yard is full of tufted titmice, but I have never seen one look like this. I keep running for binos to see what that little brown bird is! I know it is a tufted titmouse, but I assume a juvenile? I have never seen one like this and can't find any similar ones when I google juvenile tufted titmouse. Is this unusual? It is not lighting, it always looks like this.
