Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large vireo with a big bill and a pale eyebrow. Central American counterpart to Red-eyed Vireo of North America. Breeds in tropical woodland and forest of Mexico and Central America, migrating south in September to Amazonia and returning north again in March. Told from Red-eyed Vireo by its less contrasting head pattern, yellow sides and flanks, and brighter greenish upperparts. Monotonous song sounds like a House Sparrow that’s taken singing lessons.
