The White-eyed Vireo is a species of songbird found across much of the eastern United States. Their winter range extends into Central America and the Caribbean. They are found in scrubby habitat where they feed on insects like caterpillars, spiders, and flies.
White-eyed Vireos have a distinctive song. A couple of funny mnemonics used to remember their song are “quick, give me a rain check” or “Spit and see if I care! Spit!”.
White-eyed Vireos don’t achieve their namesake eye shade until they reach maturity, late in the fall of their first year. Prior to that time, the eyes are a dark, brownish color.
