Length: 6 in. (15 cm )
Gleaning insects from leaves high in the canopy of broad-leafed forests, this vireo is best detected by its nearly constant singing. The nest is a deep cup suspended in the fork of a small branch and constructed of grass and spider webbing. It winters in Amazonian South America.

The four-digit banding code is REVI.
