I kind of like Charlene Malone's description of the Warbling Vireo's song
(if I remember it correctly):

    First you sees me,
    Then you tease me,
    Then you squeeze me,
    'Til I squirt.

Everywhere in the country that I have heard this song it is very much the
same.   Sometimes you only get part of it, but the rhythm is unmistakable.
Once you learn this sequence, the Bell's Vireo really stands out as
different.

The aspect of the Bell's Vireo song that stands out for me is its
alternating ending: one time it ends on a higher note and another time
on a lower note.
