Red-eyed Vireo, the non-stop singers

This morning I returned to the Canon City Riverwalk and was quickly rewarded with a singing Red-eyed Vireo, the first this year. I watched it for about 15 minutes as it flitted from branch to branch, singing vociferously then taking a quick break to eat then returning to its singing.
Not easy to locate visually, once sighted it's distinctive white eyebrow that is sandwiched between a dark eyeline and a dark crown makes distinguishes it from other vireo species. More pics on next post.
