The yellow fringes on Huttons' (and other) Vireos extend to the lower wing bar. On Ruby-crowned Kinglet, they do not, thus leaving an unmarked band of black below the lower wing bar. The width of that black band is quite variable, because birds can hold their secondaries in slightly different positions.
