Well-known member
Is it a Philadelphia Vireo or Orange-Crowned Warbler, or others?

Thanks

Can't pretend to be too experienced with either, but don't structure, lack of eye crescents and that hook-tipped bill point to a vireo?
 
Not the easiest of angles, but for the reasons that Jeff says, I agree it looks like a Philadelphia Vireo. More yellow looking than might be expected but I suspect that's a photo effect, maybe caused by surrounding green foliage, reflecting the colour onto the underparts

I believe you're right, Jeff. Vireo for me, and the timing, the dark lores (at least as dark as behind the eye) as well as yellowish color point to Philadelphia.
 
I also agree!...should’ve looked at the date (assumed that it had just been imaged) not to mention the hook-tipped bill. 😮
