Northern Parula in Hillcrest

Early Wednesday morning I had a surprise Northern Parula–blue head, white eye ring, and bright yellow throat over a very white body– near Brookes and Herbert in residential Hillcrest. The bird was moving around near the top of a large leafed tree on the Brookes side of the corner lot. Normally, I'd say take care if you want to chase and don't bother the residents; however, this home seems to be for rent and vacant, so use your own judgment. The area is just to the east of Marston Canyon, so the bird could be moving between the canyon and the neighborhood. I never have pictures, but a longer, more detailed description is in my eBird report:
