More eye candy. I just love Magnolia Warblers. If you want to remember how to ID them, I think of them as the "everything warbler." In spring they have just about every type of field mark warblers can have — dark mask, eye-crescents, white eyebrow starting above eye, white wing-bars, yellow throat, yellow underparts with black stripes forming almost a necklace, white undertail coverts. They have white spots part way up the black tail, so when viewed from underneath, the tail has a black tip.
