Red Eyed Vireo

One of the ROLF's common birds, the Red-eyed Vireo is heard far more than it is seen. It sings continuously from the forest canopy from dawn to dusk. The vireo's song is a series of phrases interspaced with short pauses, like the song of an American Robin broken into pieces. The White Eyed Vireo is also common at ROFL and is more often heard near the North Fork River banks.

I heard a good number of these birds while staying in the Whispering Pines Cabin.
