White-eyed Vireo!

Watching a white-tailed deer stroll unhurried along the path near the tip of the peninsula, I got a whiff of unusual birdsong. When the deer had left, I approached.
Clear, distinct song coming from within the foliage. Two slight variations. Unfamiliar.

Up go the binoculars. A little white, a little yellow. White eyes. Well how about that, a white-eyed vireo. I managed a low light documentary shot.
I saw one at the CRP last year, but earlier, during the peak of migration. Could this one be here to stay?
