BANDED JUVENILE BLUE-HEADED VIREO, PRINCE EDWARD POINT BIRD OBSERVATORY, MILFORD, ON

   You can see the band in all the photos.  We can ID this bird as a juvenile Blue-headed Vireo by its bold white "spectacles" contrasted with its grey head, yellow-olive flanks, white throat and yellow wing-bars.  Notice the hooked bill, which can be seen the best in the last photo and the bluish legs.  Vireos in general have hooked bills and bluish legs.
