Philadelphia Vireo

A small, migratory bird mostly feeding insects. Difficult to spot and photograph as this species prefers to stay between the leaves of trees and due to its color perfectly blends into its surroundings.

How to Identify?

There are other, similar species. This species is identified by its yellow belly, brown-olive back and white stripe above the eye and dark band through its eye.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

During late spring, summer and early autumn in almost every park with larger forest area of high leave trees.

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
