Length: 6 in. (14 cm )
Usually seen low in shrubs and undergrowth vegetation of open forest and forest edge, this vireo places its deep, cup-like nest in the fork of a small branch in a tall shrub or low tree. The nest is made of grass, insect and spider webbing and lichens. Food is almost solely insects during the spring and summer, but berries and small fruits are added to the diet in the fall and winter.

The four-digit banding code is YTVI.
