How to Identify
Very similar in appearance to the Philadelphia Vireo. Distinctive characteristic is the white breast and bluish legs.
Where & When to Spot
Difficult to spot because of the bird’s preference to stay within the dense leaves of trees. I may spot this species while tentatively following small birds hopping around within the tree branches.
