Regarding the question as to whether roughleaf dogwood and gray dogwood are
the same shrub, first, I'm not a botanist, but have a 1977 TREES OF MISSOURI
by Settergren and McDermott. This booklet states that roughleaf dogwood,
cornus drummondii, is probably found in every county in MO, has leaves that
are very rough above, wooly before and has  a white berry...  Under "Other
dogwoods", gray dogwood is listed, C. racemosa Lam., and is scattered
throughout the state. It does not give information on the berry. Other
dogwoods have red or black fruit.

I agree that the bell's vireo likes the small shrubby growth best, which
ever kind species.
