Hi Julie,

I think you may have two mystery birds.
The mystery bird appears to be a Warbling Vireo.
The second is the one named Chipping Sparrow which I believe to be a
Clay-colored Sparrow.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Westminster blue-headed vireo & mystery bird

Much to my surprise, I spotted what I'm fairly certain is a 
blue-headed vireo in my yard this morning.  Also spotted were a few 
common yellowthroats, a mystery flycatcher or vireo of some sort, a 
pileated woodpecker an our usual common feeder birds: black-capped 
chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches (still no reds in the yard, 
though I've seen them in the neighborhood), house sparrows, tufted 
titmice, downy woodpeckers, blue jays, mourning doves, house and gold 

Thumbnails of the vireo, the mystery bird, a house finch and the 
yellowthroats, all pointing to larger pictures, at:
