White-Eyed Vireo

Vireo griseus

I met the White-Eyed Vireo in the spring of 2020 while on my first trip to Texas. The singing of loud songs from dense thickets attracted my attention, but the singer remained mostly out of my view, frustrating my attempts to capture a photograph. I eventually learned this behaviour is typical for the species.

In summer, these birds range north to southern New England and west to Iowa, but retreat south in winter to the southeast USA and the gulf coast of Mexico. Both males and females sing in winter, but the summer singers are male.
