Experiences & anecdotes
8/7/2021 - This was the day that the White-eyed Vireo finally cooperated for a blurry, mediocre photo.
3/11/2023 - Because this bird is very vocal and shy, it is a great target to record. It makes a chk-vireo-chk sound that sounds like no other bird I hear. Its song is conspicuous and easy to pick out from the cacophony of the forest.
|The first time the Vireo decided to make a quick appearance. I was able to snap this quick, but blurry photo of it.|
|This photo attempt was much better with ideal lighting. You can really see the white eyes.|

- This bird calls without the final chk. Halfway through the clip is switches its song to an even more complicated version.
