[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm not 100% positive on identification and thinking this maybe a draub Adult as is pale green on top side, yellow wash on the under side, weak eyebrows, and pale lores creating "blank-faced" look..

What think??

Field Guide: Usually solitary.Feeds mainly on caterpillars and insects. Often spotted in the upper to middle levels of trees within foliage which is exactly where i saw him/her.

Right now the misquitos are ferocious and am glad this little fellow is here for the feast..

Hi Jane,

It does look like a Vireo, not sure which one though. The eyeline doesn't match the one of the Philadelphia in my guide. They are so small and flighty that it's hard to get a clear shot of one like you did. The face has such good details that I'm sure someone will ID it. I love they way he is squeezing between the branches.


hello Jane

excellent shot, fine POV and DOF, beautiful luminosity of the image,
i love the all green background, this pose of the bird
it is bringing dynamism to the image, i love it, TFS
