    Hello and help needed in ID’ing this bird. I took this photo at Lake Sinclair in middle Georgia. I was in a hammock when it landed int the tree top.

    Jean…here is a website that I found that shows the undertails of warblers….http://blog.press.princeton.edu/2013/07/25/downloadable-warbler-guide-quick-finders/ Scroll down to the picture of the undertails….

    (according to this, you might have a female redstart…but I am in a hurry, so you will want to double check that)

    Sibley’s also has a field guide of just warblers, that shows the undertails…I don’t get to the woods often (nearly ever) or I would buy this…

    Hope this helps,

    Linda Z

    I think you might have  a Nashville warbler there…

    Linda, thanks for that wonderful link. I thought this could be a female American Redstart. The section of undertales confirmed it. Black at the end of the tail and my field guide says they have patches of yellow. 

    Sharon, I appreciate your help!

    Hi Jean. If you haven’t figured it out yet, it may be Kingbird. There are alot of species. You will have to Google it. Good Luck. Carol
