A whole bunch of these little things have shown up in my oak tree. I'm not a bird photog and not equipped for it so this is a huge crop but hopefully enough info for an ID. My wife and her sister want to know what it is. I'm calling it the lone ranger finch cause it has a mask.

It's a Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Thanks -- looks like that's it -- something about a Myrtle Warbler also showed up.

The Myrtle Warbler and Audubon's Warbler were lumped together into Yellow-rumped Warbler a number of years back. A common moniker for them is "Butter Butt".

This page and its attached sections should tell her all she wants to know about these birds.
