Seen in SE Tx. Yellow almost green breast. Grey on back! Seems very sociable as he didn't fly away when I got close to him.

don't think so

I don't recall seeing the distinctive white band on his tail, and from all I have read his breast was not pure white-it was more yellow to almost neon green colour. Thanks for your input. Someone else suggested a western wood Peewee, but we don't get those here.
