Feathered Friends: Red Eyed Vireo

We never would have been able to identify this little Red Eyed Vireo in Grant Park without this picture. We could see some identifying marks (eye stripes, coloring) in the other pictures I had, but there were a lot of birds that fit that general description. Its red eye is clear in this photo.

More pictures of the Red Eyed Vireo are at my birdwatching blog, which is here.

Great shot of this little fellow. I'm amazed at how many birds you've spotted within such a big city!

Believe me, we're surprised as well. It's been fun discovering the wildlife that lives in the city with us.
