White Eyed Vireo

Medium sized, somewhat secretive Vireo found primarily in the Eastern and Southern USA. Somewhat uncommon in Canada, this Vireo is found in scrub, thickets and mangrove.

Identification features include:

White Eye (of course!)
Whitish throat
Yellow spectacles (not entirely clear in this shot)
Olive green upper parts and yellow sides

Note also the small hook at the end of beak which is a trait of most Vireo's.

Since they tend to be quite secretive and shy, they are most often identified by song.

Bonjour Peter,
Belle image de cet oiseau et bonne composition. Bonne position du sujet et de son regard.
Belles couleurs et bonne netteté.

lovely capture and good presentation Peter Caulfield. I like the perfect simplicity and the fine moderate colors in this frame. Perfect focus! The noise in the background could be removed gently, I think!
