Yellow-throated Vireo 1

YTVI_1_flat_sm

Starting the fourth Texas lifer, the Yellow-throated Vireo. This bird was harder for us to find because it moved rather slowly through the branches, often singing from a secluded perch. I wanted to represent it as if it were sneaking between the leaves. We eventually found it by zeroing in on its song, which isn’t terribly different from our local Cassin’s Vireo. Anyway, there’s much more work to to, but I’m happy with the first few lines.
