Red-eyed Vireo

In For the Birds by WDEV Radio

The hot weather is when you’ll almost always hear one bird, the Red-eyed Vireo. A bird you might not often see, you’ll often hear it. From the Cornell Lab: “A tireless songster, the Red-eyed Vireo is one of the most common summer residents of Eastern forests. These neat, olive-green and white songbirds have a crisp head pattern of gray, black, and white. Their brief but incessant songs—sometimes more than 20,000 per day by a single male—contribute to the characteristic sound of an Eastern forest in summer. When fall arrives, they head for the Amazon basin, fueled by a summer of plucking caterpillars from leaves in the treetops.”
