Mystery Warbler (photos provided) in Carmel Valley

Did my biking birding Global Big Day today (May 9) in the Carmel Valley, Sorrento Valley, Peñasquitos Canyon area. At 6:00 PM I was taking a happy hour/dinner break and saw this bird on my street. I didn’t have my binocs with me at the moment (Murphy’s Law), only my cellphone, so I took three pretty bad pictures but they show the feature I want to ask about. This bird looked like an Orange-crowned Warbler except for the black throat patch. If anyone has an idea as to what this bird is, please let me know. Checklist with photos:
