Mystery Vireo - Illinois

Recommended Posts

Greetings. Having a hard time ID'ing this vireo. Lake County (northern) Illinois. Have narrowed it to: Warbling, Red-eyed, and Philadelphia.  Sorry for the weak photos. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Actually this is a Philadelphia Vireo, notice the cutesy appearance, dark lores, and bright yellow in the throat.

Totally agree!  The larger eyes, shorter bill, and more rounded head make them cuter. 😃
