Yellow-throated Vireo Dulzura 4-24-2020

I first heard this bird sing it's two part spaced buzzy song about 10:30 this morning.

I was just putting away the weed wacking machine so it may have been singing earlier and unheard with my ear muffs on. 
I expected a "Solitary" type vireo
Went and got bins, and was surprised to find a bright yellow vireo, with yellow spectacles, yellow throat and breast, white belly, bold white wing bars, on gray wings. Head and back an off yellow green. Grayish rump. Yellow-throated Vireo
This bird was moving around very slowly and singing it's repeated spaced phrases and then took short flights between eucalyptus trees.
About 10:45 it stopped sing and was silent , but seemed to settle on the tall eucalyptus over the driveway, and the smaller ecuc just across the drive.
Last seen by three of us about 1:15 p.m.
If you'd like to take a crack at this bird, you're welcome to. Please contact me off line for directions.
