|White-eyed Vireo Vireo griseus|
The White-eyed Vireo breeds in central and eastern USA from the Great Lakes south and into eastern Mexico. Northern races migrate to south-east Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Cuba while the populations around the Gulf states of the USA and Bermuda are sedentary. See the distribution map at NatureServe.
It feeds largely on insects, moths, butterflies and their larvae.
Vocalisations have been widely studied and there are two main voices; a short sharp warble and a rambling song lasting up to a minute or more. Other birds are imitated and there are distinct regional accents to the vocalisations.
