White Eyed Vireo
Very common at ROLF. The White-eyed Vireo is often difficult to spot as it likes to lurk in moist thickets and woods. Fortunately it has a very distinctive call, consisting of a 5 to 7 note phrase followed by a sharp Chick. Pick-up-a-real-CHICK. Sometimes the call resembles very closely that of the Yellow-breasted Chat. Also aiding in identification are its white eyes.
