This Yellow-throated Vireo interrupts his territorial activities with a brief breakfast, which consists of a large insect.  (If you can identify the insect, please let me know - merlin@pipeline.com He then resumes singing as he moves about his territory. 

True to his name, this vireo sports a bright yellow throat.  Also check out his yellow spectacles.  The video ends with a slow motion repeat of the breakfast scene.
