This is actually an adult Red-eyed Vireo. Note the olive-green above, whitish below, no wingbars, dark stripes through the eye and above the eye, thick, hooked bill, and white eyebrow. The red eye is not always easy to see due to the lighting. 

Warbling Vireos don't have the strong face pattern, contrast between the head and back, and contrast between the back and belly. They also have a smaller bill and usually have dingy (not white) underparts.

Agreed.  Red-eyeds have more contrasty plumage and a longer head with a darker cap and eyeline and a larger bill than Warblings.

EDIT:  akandula added details after I began typing. 🙂
