I think it's a Solitary Vireo based on Stokes field guide, but need confirmation.

Thanks...Al

Yes and no - right bird, but Stokes is out of date; the old Solitary Vireo has been split into three species now. This one is a Blue-headed Vireo (Vireo solitarius, from eastern North America). The other two are Cassin's Vireo (Vireo cassinii, from northwestern North America), and Plumbeous Vireo (Vireo plumbeus, from southwestern North America).

You're welcome! Best to get is the latest editions of either Sibley or the National Geographic.
