Red-eyed Vireo

Listen to a red-eyed vireo.

One of the most abundant woodland birds in North America, red-eyed vireos can be found almost anywhere there are deciduous trees, including many woodlots and mixed forests. The gray cap, white supercilium, dark line through the eye, greenish upperparts, whitish underparts, and large bill are distinctive. The contrasting cap separates it from the warbling vireo and the whitish throat from the Philadelphia vireo. Red-eyeds spend most of their time in the mid and upper canopy of forested areas, moving slowly and deliberately as they feed. The males are among the most persistent singers of all birds and have been recorded singing more than 10,000 songs a day in spring. The song of the red-eyed vireo is one of the few woodland voices that is often heard in the middle of hot summer days. The song consists of quick two and three note whistled phrases delivered with measured breaks, so that each phrase seems to stand alone. The birds also have a soft catbird-like mew note that they give when they are agitated.

Warbling Vireo

Listen to a warbling vireo.

The warbling vireo has the largest range of any member of the family in North America, being found from western and southern Canada through most of the United States. They are separated from other vireos by the plain face broken only by a white supercilium, the pale lores, a gray-green back, the lack of wing bars, and the mostly whitish underparts. Birds in the West average yellower underneath, especially in the fall. Warbling vireos are found in a variety of habitats with deciduous trees including woodlands, riparian areas, and even pastures with scattered sycamores. Even more than most vireos, adults sing from the nest, making them easy to find sometimes. The song of eastern birds is a jumbled series of fairly rapid whistled notes, reminiscent of the house finch to many ears. Western birds have a slightly buzzier version that is less melodic. Other vocalizations are more rarely heard and include a mew note similar to that given by red-eyed vireo, although it is slightly harsher.
