This tiny little bird just visited my yard. He was way in the tops of the trees. When he flew, his belly looked yellow and the underside of his wings looked reddish. His bill appeared pink through binocs. In the pics, the lower portion of the bill looks pink. He was in the shade the whole time, but the top of him looked blue/gray to the eye. In the pics, it looks greenish. I have several pics.
