I see it too, I think it's just a misalignment/adherence of feathers due to the moisture, not actual plumage markings.

That's what I thought at first, but then I spotted the faint 'necklace' on the second photo. It's hard to see on the posting, clearer on my Ipad. I'm also in Texas on the migration flyway so I sometimes have the odd bird move through my yard fall and spring.

Yellow/green on the mantle suggests away from Canada, plus it's a little late in the year for them. Bright yellow vent and broad white eyering suggest Nashville, Oreothlypis ruficapilla.
