Not know for its plumage, this small Warbling Vireo has gained its name and reputation through song.
If you listen and tred carefully you may find the Warbling Vireo in a grove of tall shade trees on the bank of a stream. It breeds in most of the Continental United States with the exception of Texas, the Carolinas and Florida.
Calls or song.
The Warbling Vireo, as its name might imply, warbles with a complex and persistant, "iggley, pigelly, wigelly, pig" and "brigadier, brigadier, briga-tree".
Population and distribution.
Widespread throughout the U.S. Winters in the tropics
The Warbling Vireo constructs a workmanlike cup of bark and plant down, which it places within the fork of a tree limb at the top of the tree. It lays 3-4 brown speckled white eggs
