I feel that this is a Cassin's Vireo Vireo cassinii; it was moving in the oaks above our balcony in NW San Antonio, Texas on October 24, 2020. The photos were taken after it flew in close overhead in response to us playing the Cassin's Vireo call (which seems virtually identical to the call of Blue-headed Vireo to my ears). The backlighting makes it hard to accurately assess the tones; in real life when it was moving around without sky in the background it appeared to be a bit paler than in these photos.
