Bird quiz

OK folks. Open your Sibley or Audubon and identify this bird. I see it every year when the goldfinches pass through.

well, how big is it and is there a large white stripe on the wing? looks like a baby mockingbird, cept for the little bit of yellow. my guess is it's either a female or an immature male which is gonna make it harder to identify.

yet my book is in the room with the sleeping YOU are gonna have to Wait!!

It's finch sized, has a short tail and a stubby beak. I think it's a Pine siskin but others think it is a vireo. It's a mystery.

My guess would be an immature and/or female yellow-rumped warbler.
