Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plain olive with uneven white eyering and white wingbars. Males have red crown patch, but it's often hidden. Breeds in tall, dense conifer forests. Found in shrubby habitats, deciduous forests, parks, and suburbs during migration and winter. Gives off an energetic vibe as it moves extremely quickly and flicks its wings. Similar in plumage to Hutton's Vireo, but note tiny bill.
