South St. Louis county. Sunday June 7.    
   
  Ya can't help but like this vireo. 
  1st: it's scientific name Vireo bellii, that's interpretable. 
  2nd: it's our rarest breeding vireo, yet findable.
  3rd: it stays near the ground.
  4th: it sings a lot. Thus we don't chase it or really look at it.
   
  But you can't hear it on these pics:
  A glimpse here:

  And a glimpse there:
    Yeah, the eye was dark, and there is some sort of eye-brow-ring:
