Cassin’s Vireo

A delicately beautiful songbird with a bold white ring encircling the eye, Cassin’s Vireo sings a loud, burry song while foraging slowly through the lower and middle parts of trees. It breeds in dry, open forests of far western North America. Outside the breeding season, this species often joins mixed-species flocks of woodland birds. Until 1997, Cassin’s Vireo was lumped with Blue-headed Vireos and Plumbeous Vireos into a single species called Solitary Vireo. Cassin’s is less colorful than Blue-headed Vireos but richer in olive tones than the mostly Gray Plumbeous.

Bell’s Vireo

The Bell’s Vireo is a small, drab passerine found across central and southern parts of North America. Not much of a looker, these birds are mostly identified through their scratchy, fast song. They prefer low, bushy thickets near streams and rivers. They are difficult to observe as they nervously flit through the scrub. Bell’s Vireos do not stand out from other birds in their family, you can verify it’s them by comparing their size to the larger Gray Vireo.

Yellow-throated Vireo

The Yellow-throated Vireo is native to the eastern parts of the North American continent. In this continent, their breeding grounds are located on the edges of deciduous as well as coniferous forests. They tend to inhabit the edges of forests, streams, rivers, gaps between fallen trees, and woodland areas in human settlements such as parks and towns with a high number of trees. Yellow-throated Vireo’s tend to share their habitats with the much more commonly seen Red-throated Vireo.

Warbling Vireo

The Warbling Vireo is a bird that is well known for their complex song. This warbling is common during the breeding season. Their song is very well-recognized and liked. These birds are much easier to hear than to sight. Both sexes of this species look alike. Two subspecies of this species are common in North America. The Vireo gilvus gilvus in the east, and the V.g. swainsoni in the west. The main differences between these birds are size-related. On average the gilvus is larger than swainsoni in regard to the size of wing chord, mass, and bill size.

Hutton’s Vireo

Hutton’s Vireo (Vireo huttoni) is a small songbird. It is approximately 5 inches (12–13 cm) in length, dull olive-gray above and below. They have a faint white eye-ring and faint white wing bars. It closely resembles a ruby-crowned kinglet, but has a thicker bill and is slightly larger in size. Its most common song is a repeated “chu-wee, or chew”, but will have other variations. Its call is a mewing chatter. It is found from southern British Columbia in Canada to central Guatemala in Central America. Recent DNA studies suggest this species may be split into at least 2 different species, with coastal Pacific birds showing enough genetic variation when compared to interior ones.

White-eyed Vireo

The White-eyed Vireo is a migratory songbird more frequently detected by ear than by eye. Although this species is cryptic in both plumage and behavior, male White-eyed Vireos compensate with explosive and complex singing. Individuals have repertoires of a dozen or more distinct songs, each comprising of six to ten highly variable elements. Because of their complex song delivery, this species is a compelling subject for studies of vocal communication.

Philadelphia Vireo

The Philadelphia Vireo is a quaint bird that breeds in the northernmost region of the range of all North American Vireos. They are small and most abundantly inhabit deciduous forests across the continent. These small birds very much resemble other vireos that can be found in the region. It overlaps the most with Red-eyed Vireos, where they coexist in the same range and even in the same territories. As a result, these birds can often go unnoticed by even the most seasoned bird watchers.
