Yellow-green Vireo

Vireo flavoviridis


Length: 6 in. (15 cm)
This vireo occurs in the mid to upper levels of open woodland and forest edge. The female constructs the cup-like nest out of bark and fine grass, and places it on a small branch in the middle to upper levels of a tall tree. Yellow-green Vireos eat insects gleaned from tree foliage, and they seem to prefer caterpillars and beetles. In the Fall and Winter they also eat berries, including mistletoes. The four-digit banding code is YGVI.
