Small green bird about the size of a goldfinch. 2/21/15

We are in Conway SC near Myrtle Beach.

Noticed this guy yesterday and he is back today.
About the size of a goldfinch which at first I thought he was, except our gold finches here are turing yellow after the winter.
Looked in the Audubon book and the closest I can come is Yellow bellied flycatcher but the beak looks different and not the black in the wings. This guy has some black you can see in the rear shot??????????
Help.
Saw a flock of cedar waxwings feeding on the ground several days ago.
