Some vireos have eye rings with a connecting band and wing bars,
others have eye stripes and no wing bars.

Most vireos are olive, gray, brown, or greenish above and white
or yellow below.

The name vireo comes from the Latin word meaning to be green.
Vireo thus signifies a green finch.

Vireo bills are heavier than those of warblers and have a tiny
hook on the end.

There are about 50 species of vireos; 12 in the United States.

Vireos migrate toward the Tropics after the breeding season.

3 to 5 eggs are laid in nests suspended from crotches of
thin branches. Eggs are white with a few speckles of brown
or black.

They feed on crawling insects on tree leaves and soft fruit.
