Is it possible that you mistook the upper wing for the underwing? If so, Black-bellied Whistling-Duck would be a good fit to your description.

I agree with Ovenbird and Hairy Woodpecker.

I think that you were right with Warbling Vireo. It doesn't look "angry" enough for Red-eyed to me.

It is a sandpiper. Black legs and semipalmated feet make it either Western or Semipalmated. Based on the bill size and shape, I would say that it's a Semipalmated Sandpiper.
