Better pics of the Yellow-green Vireo

Yesterday the rare Yellow-green Vireo was still at the Sheepshead Valley Fund lots on South Padre Island and it put on a show foraging in sight 4 different times while I was there. And it came in to the closer water feature that has better lighting and is closer than where I photographed it day before yesterday. The pics above and below nicely show the how extensive the  yellowish is on this bird as it extends into it's belly from it's neck and flanks, a field mark for Yellow-green but not for the similar Red-eyed Vireo.
