Adult Prairie Warblers typically have a distinctive face pattern but in fall the immatures can look like other species. Even though immatures can look pale gray in the face they often retain a remnant of the distinctive adult face pattern. Prairie Warblers often wag their tails. Palm Warblers also wag their tails but are paler below with more streaking on the breast.
