Re: Bird and Butterfly Garden vireos, mis-IDs

Upon further review of additional photos it appears what several people thought might be the Yellow-green Vireo was in fact correctly identified as a Red-eyed Vireo.  So, currently the last known date for the Yellow-green is 2 October, but, given the gap in days between previous sightings it could well still be there. My original point, though, that these are tricky, especially when seen through thick vegetation (and the reflection of light off leaves looking yellow), still holds true.
