I'd say you're right on it being a Common Yellowthroat.  They can be quite variable as immatures, from more yellow than you would expect to less yellow.  The taillessness could be the result of molt or of it being a very recent fledgling.

I have posted a folder to?my zenfolio pages?of what I think is a Common Yellow-throat. Just not sure as it looks more like a chicken in that it has no tail and color pattern seems off. Any thoughts on id would be appreciated. Thanks much, Anita
