Observation details

Continuing bird found this morning, seen feeding in hackberry and black cherry around parking lot and then along the edge of the service road, at times would dart into the pines and feed there. Seen eating many caterpillars, bugs, and a few autumn olives. Seen in direct comparison with REVIs. Tan cheek distinct compared to a more contrasted gray and white cheek of REVI, distinct black malar stripe seen, crown not bordered in black like REVI instead the paler gray faded into the eyestripe and the face (reminded me of PHVI cap), definitely a dull individual likely a HY, belly lacking in the yellow present along the edges of breast and belly, overall more gray and white throat down to undertail coverts, pale yellow undertail coverts a little paler than REVI, back a dull grayish color which contrasted with the yellow fringes to the primaries while REVI has a uniform olive green back extending through the wings, when perched beside REVI seemed comparable size though in flight when the REVI interacted or chased the BWVI there was a minute but visible size difference between the two, calls heard were incredibly similar to REVI maybe just a little whinier but incredibly similar.
