Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus)

Red-eyed Vireo

The red eye of this small olive-green and white bird, although giving it a name, is of little help in identifying it.  Abundant in eastern forests in its breeding season, it winters in South America.  This bird is seen in deciduous trees in city parks during migration.

Its call is a monotonous series of short, abrupt phrases similar to a robin's.   It is repeated as often as 40 times a minute, all through the day.  It is lucky for suburban sleepers that the vireo doesn't sing at night.
