Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small, noisy inhabitant of woodlands including mangrove swamps and shade coffee plantations; often feeds low, near ground. This relatively plain species has a grayish head and chest that contrasts with a yellow-washed belly. The White-eyed Vireo looks passingly similar, but has bold white wingbars and a yellow spot in front of the eyes. The Caribbean Elaenia has whitish wingbars and is usually found perched upright or flycatching. Puerto Rican Vireos sing “chuwee-chuweech-you,” “Chewee-wit-weee,” or variations therein. Its calls include a plaintive “zhe, zhe, zhe…” and an emphatic “djuh.”
