Orange-crowned Warblers are busy little birds and hard to catch sitting still for a clear photo. Only the males have the orange crown, which is often not visible. They are dark olive on back and wings, yellow underneath, with faint blurred stripping. Another clue is to look for the dark line through the eye.
