Hard to believe how time has flown, but the16th DG annual photo contest has begun! Find the details here. Best wishes to all the entrants!!!

Saw this bird in Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge near Pharr, TX today. It was less than a mile from the Rio Grande. Like a dummy, I left my Sibley's at home and I'm not keen on warblers. Not a great pic, but the white eyes, yellow crown and wingbars should be good fieldmarks. Resin, somebody?

I haven't had much time down here, haven't been on DG, but have some pics on my Flickr stream, just search for 'reddirpics'.

Thanks, Donna. I agree. I've only seen a couple of these and none recently. Checked images online and it's the bird.

reddirtretiree, I'm glad to see they let you come across the border (the Texas/Oklahoma, that is):) Have fun down there! I wish I was there, too.

You definitely have a White-eyed Vireo.

If you need to pick up an extra field guide, I suggest the Crossley ID Guide, if you don't already have one. It's a spectacular book.
