Thank you Stefan. Yes, I see what you mean. I did see the spotted breast on
the Ovenbird today earlier. You are right.
This bird was across from the Sportsplex off of 25th Avenue and there was a lot
of urban noise going on at times.
I was hoping someone on here would help me on the ID. Thank you for your help.

A little hard from that one image, but that looks more like an Ovenbird to me
(brighter crown above the dark stripe). Seeing a Swainson's Warbler out in the
open like that would be incredibly unusual, but normal for Ovenbird.

Today I visited Centennial Park in Nashville Tennessee. Great birds there.
Found this bird working meticulously on the ground, going through leaves. I
believe it is a Swainson's Warbler. I'm about to enter my checklist for eBird.
Going through audio recordings again but don't think I got sound - calls or
song. It was an olive- brown bird, white underneath, with a dark eye line and
brown crown. I believe it had pink legs. Could not get a good photo but here's
the best one I could get below. Just so excited to be there with all the
great warblers and birds today.
