Found in Shenandoah Valley western edge mountains (near Elliot Knob, VA), prob around 2500-3000' ASL a week or so ago.
Philadelphia Vireo? Red-eyed V? Not sure if the yellow neck is artifact (lighting) or real. DSA04344-DeN-low-light-Edit.jpg

Ahhhh, yessss. How did I miss that?!!
And very possible since I just went back and checked time etc. and it was lower elev (trailhead prob around 2000' ASL) and along a creek/shrubby section that would be very typical for this species. If you are in MD you might know Elliot Knob and surroundings?

thank you kindly ;-)
How about Worm-eating Warbler?

Having never heard of this Warbler I had to google it. It sure is a great looking Warbler but it doesn't eat worms :) Do eat caterpillars though.
