Gray Vireo

Vireo vicinior

Gray Vireo
copyright Herbert Clarke
Length: 6 in. (14 cm)
A nondescript bird, the Gary Vireo is best identified by its song and its breeding habitat, mixed chaparral bushes and scattered juniper trees in foothill mountains. It feeds on insects, and the cup-shaped nest is suspended in the fork of a small branch. Brown-headed Cowbirds frequently lay an egg in this vireo's nest. The four-digit banding code is GRVI.
