Vireo Identification Help Nevada, USA

Hello,

We saw this vireo at Overton Wildlife Management Area.

It was flying around in a leafy tree surrounded by dense desert vegetation. Not sure what kind of vireo it is, we've only seen a couple.

The third picture we're not 100% sure if it is the same bird or not. It looks slightly different, but it was seen very close to the other one and looks similar.

Maybe a Plumbeous Vireo, but distinguishing this from Cassin's Vireo requires judging fine gradations of color, and I am not sure that is possible with these photos.

I agree on Cassin's/Plumbeous on the first two, but I lean towards Bell's Vireo for the last one.
