Birds - Philadelphia Vireo
Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Vireonidae

Philadelphia Vireo, Vireo philadelphicus. Another small bird in olive and yellow, but with lighter markings on the cheeks. They can be spotted during migration. They prefer a forested habitat, where they eat insects and fruit. I used the yellow belly and the long dark eye stripe to identify this Vireo.

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