Palm Warbler female 11/6/18

There’s nothing more confusing in the bird world than the fall warblers to me, but I do have a few of them down, one of them being the Palm Warbler. Spring males are brighter yellow and the breast streaks and cap are a rusty chestnut. No hint of that here leads me to think this a female when a juve would be even more drab and less yellow. Palms are found lower to the ground than most warblers, and helpful in identifying them is the near constant wagging of their tails.
