Cassin's Vireo

Had beautiful views of this bird at close range through the scope. White eye ring and white lores formed "spectacles". Head dark and gray-blue, contrasting slightly with more olivey back. Two wing bars. Yellow-green edging on wing feathers. Underside lighter. Was poking around ~15' up a cottonwood tree. Looking carefully along the branches.
