Probably my best non-mallard duck photo.

One of my photo nemesis birds.....

This stunner is one of only 2 I’ve actually seen and this is my only photo which is currently sitting at a 2 star rating on eBird.  I can hear multiple of them every day in the summer, but never get to see them.... they mock me. 
Maybe next year I’ll get a better photo, though I like them better than Cassins vireos who I’ve never actually seen, just heard.

I don’t know how you guys got yours to come down so close. The ones near me prefer to be 50 feet up in the cedar trees... 
Maybe I should have saved this for “Your worst photo of a bird species”

@Aaron I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been struggling to a get a decent photo of a Warbling Vireo!  You're right, it is like they're mocking the birders below when they're singing constantly waaaay up in a tree among the leaves.  They actually sing on their nests, so sometimes they never move!

I think their song is one of the easiest to learn and remember.  If you know their song, you'll eventually find one.

Really? I remember I had a lot of trouble differentiating it from purple Finch at first. But yes, as you get more experienced with bird songs, it sticks out more and more.

Ever since I learned that they ended on a high note it just stuck in my mind.  I believe it's the first vireo song I learned.
