Mourning Warbler
- HY female - Carlyle Lake, Clinton County, Illinois, October 19, 2019. Very late and worthy of close scrutiny to make certain it's not a MGWA. A decent shot of the face through the blurred twigs in the foreground. The mostly yellow throat, nearly complete eye-ring, dark lore against yellow supraloral all signal HY female MOWA.

Mourning Warbler
- HY female - Carlyle Lake, Clinton County, Illinois, October 19, 2019.  A new late date for Carlyle; previously October 8, 2016 (DMK). The uniformly bright yellow vent is dissimilar to the COYE which shows a multicolor blend of yellow, brown and white.

Mourning Warbler
- HY female - Carlyle Lake, Clinton County, Illinois, October 19, 2019. Another decent look at the eye-ring and here the undertail coverts.

Mourning Warbler
- HY female - Carlyle Lake, Clinton County, Illinois, October 19, 2019. A stick in the eye is never good and especially so for this ID.
