I now think the ?flycatcher? might be a Blue-headed vireo.  Help, anyone.

Thanks.  Did you notice the hook on the bill?  Red-eyed; seems the over-eye markings don't match.  I'll try the Audubon look-up.

No, I didn't.

I'll try again tomorrow with a better book.  :)

Pelicans at a pond in City Park during golden hour with a few passing clouds.   First time out with the M5 + Tamron 150-600 (finally got the firmware upgraded).  Shot handheld or steadied on a railing.  200-400 looks great.  Next time a tripod for slow shutter speeds at 600.  A pretty good combo, not many misses other than operator error (like leaving the focus limiting switch at 15m  ::)).   Minor crop, exposure, and level adjustments.

@ Alan, dcm,

Very nice pictures, guys.


@Jack,

Sorry, I haven’t found your bird's ID. I have found some really close in shape and colorwise but not exactly the same.

Very nice pictures, guys.  Yes, add me, JDW


@Jack,

Don't fret it click, I've checked quite a bit and this one is tricky but I'm convinced it's a vireo.

It looks like a Tennessee warbler

It doesn't have the white wing stripes of the vireos. Part of the challenge is male/female and breeding or (especially in males) eclipse plumage

So my first guess is most likely.

Tennessee Warbler

No no Mike, don't be sorry. I'm just confirming my guess with yours.   :)

Thanks Mike and click.  Do you agree that my bird has a hook to its upper bill?  I have the warbler book and looking at the photos which are as usual rather small I don't see any bill hook on your guess.  What about Bell's vireo?  I looked at lots of photos online but nothing seems quite right.  Now I won't sleep for days on end if I can't resolve this. ;)
