Warbling Vireos at the Bluffs: May 21, 2022

In Ontario the Warbling Vireo is a bird of village shade trees or by rural roadsides, not a dweller in forest tree tops like the Red-eyed Vireo. In winter they go south to Central America.

Their long warbling song which usually ends in a question (rising pitch) makes them easy to locate.
