Vireo huttoni

Hutton's Vireo
copyright Herbert Clarke
Length: 5 in. (13 cm)
A small, drab species that resembles a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, this vireo is made most evident by its monotonous song. It occupies undergrowth and mid levels of pine-oak and open coniferous woodlands. It regularly joins mixed species foraging flocks of chickadees, titmice, kinglets and warblers and eats mainly insects with a smattering of fruits. The four-digit banding code is HUVI.
