Yellow-throated Vireo

I came home early today to watch my daughter while my wife is out of town.  It’s a nice day outside so I opened up the front door and turned on a fan to get some air blowing in my home.  After I began working, I heard a bird I hadn’t heard in a while–it was a Yellow-throated Vireo!  I ran outside with my camera and found the bird in a tree in my neighbors yard.  I took a few pictures for about 5 minutes.  Okay, now  back to work.
