White-eyed Vireo

The White-eyed Vireo is often hiding low in thick bushes. I spotted this little guy (Below) while finishing a hike on the Kingsnake Trail in the Congaree National Park, SC (6/19/10). I heard him singing for several minutes before I finally saw him hiding in the leafy brush, and it took another several minutes of stalking him until I could get him sitting still enough (and somewhat open enough) to focus. Although it's not a great pic, I kind of like the quality of the blurred leaves surrounding him - it gives him a  mysterious and ethereal quality.
