I am not a professional birder, but I have been familiarizing myself with area migrating and breeding song birds. This morning at 8:00am I identified what must be a Wilson's Warbler. It had the very distinct black cap. It was very very yellow with the slightly darkened wings. I looked at similar species an no other has that singular black cap. So I feel pretty sure it was a migrating Wilson's Warbler. Please correct me and help me learn if I have possibly mistaken it for another bird species. Thanks! PS_ I would have taken a picture but the bird was perched very high in a tree and my camera would not capture a decent photograph. The bird's call was near exact to the website recordings I checked.
