I think it is a Thick-billed Warbler because the thick and short bill and long tail. But I am not sure, would like to hear second opinion. Thanks in advance

Is it because the bill is not thick enough?

Thick-billed Warbler do not have a supercilium that extend behind the eye. More accurately, only the lore is pale. See the following link or other photos.
