White-eyed Vireo

Vireo griseus

White-eyed Vireo
copyright Jim Burns
Length: 5 in. (13 cm)
Usually noticed around brushy areas near streams, this vireo is easier to hear than see. The deep, cup-like nest is placed low in a dense bush and suspended by its rim in the fork of a branch. It is constructed of twigs, bark, leaves and spider silk. During the Spring and Summer its food is entirely insects and spiders, but it includes a large number of small fruits and berries in the Fall and Winter. The four-digit banding code is WEVI.
