Pictured here today is a new feathered visitor to my yard list as well as being a new addition to my life list: a Philadelphia Vireo. This is the first vireo I have seen. This was a more difficult one for me to identify and I was looking in the warbler pages of my field guide book at first. However, in an old Peterson's field guide (1980 edition), I found mention of a Philadelphia Warbler as being a similar species to an Orange-crowned Warbler. A significant characteristic that convinced me of its id was the dark spot between the eye and bill of this bird.
