Who was that masked bird?

Common yellow throated warbler. I think it should have been called the Masked Warbler or, perhaps the Lone Ranger Warbler.

Geothlypis trichas

The Common Yellowthroat was one of the first bird species to be catalogued from the New World, when a specimen from Maryland was described by Linnaeus in 1766.
