Blue-headed vireo

This is a Blue-headed Vireo, I now know.

Vireos are a hard category for relatively new birders like me. When I got home from my morning walk in Sewall’s Point with camera, I downloaded my photos, saw this one, and Google “warbler white eye ring two wing bars” then looked at the photos that came up. Looked like a Blue-headed Vireo but I thought I would get confirmation from What’s This Bird? on Facebook…

The power of the internet.

So they are not warblers.
