Birds - Blue-headed Vireo
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Vireonidae Genus:Vireo


Blue-headed Vireo, Vireo solitarius. Small, blue gray songbird with yellow sides and two white stripes on the wings. They also have white rings around their eyes. They mostly eat insects, but have been seen eating fruit, as well. I found this Blue-headed Vireo in Johnson County in early May.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
