Philadelphia vireo (???)

A lovely capture of this bird doing routine maintenance on his feathers. The vireo's colors camouflage perfectly against the foliage of what looks like a willow tree to me. Great shot Yves.. and I can't believe I missed it earlier, guess I should use the search option more often.

Back side with perfect camouflage to live a longer life ( and increase the chance of seducing a partner ).
