There is a lot of yellow.  Any chance it is a Philadelphia vireo?

>A vireo has been in the yard all day.  I spotted it diving between finches into the bird bath.  It's  throat, breast, belly, sides and vent are quite yellow.  Dark contrasting cap or crown and mostly gray head but olive from bill down. Dark wings against green/olive body.  Blue legs.  It chatted for a very brief moment and only once.
