Your bird is most definitely in the warbler family based on its size, shape and coloration.

Harder to pinpoint exactly which warbler it is as there are so many different varieties.

Perhaps consulting a bird book or other reference on warblers common to your area of Texas with pictures would be the way to match yours with the specific variety illustrated in the book.

A local university expert in birding or with the Audubon society familiar with warblers in your state would also likely be able to help in making an exact identification.

Beautiful bird and a great picture!!
