Blue-headed Vireo

Blue-headed Vireo seen during one of my walks. They blend in really well with the leaves.  I really love his little white "eye rings" that extend out to his beak. Looks like he's wearing little white glasses :)  
Have a Wonderful Day!!

I've never seen one, so I'm no help Kerri! If it's any consolation, I don't keep a life list either, though I have tried to keep a yard list since we moved here on Chickadee. Vireo looks right to me! Don't you just hate it when those pesky branches get in the way? :c)

Nice capture Kerri,
It is a Blue-headed Vireo.

The morning Sun lighting does'nt
help, cause it changes the coloring
some. It was called "Solitary Vireo".
I had to check in 3 or 4 books to realize that Solitary and Blue-headed were the same.

I agree re the white eye rings looking like glasses. They also accentuate his eyes.
The branch may have got in the way, but you've done a beautiful play with the light in this photo, Kerri.jamiessh

Despite the small branch, the photo is wonderful! I too recently saw a Blue-eyed Vireo for the first time, even though they are supposed to be common. Such beautiful birds! Beautiful capture once again!

Wonderfully sharp image and the branch does not distract from the bird's beauty.
