Hutton's Vireo

Found in pine, oak, and riparian woodlands, often not far from water.

Compare with Ruby-crowned Kinglet; note that Hutton’s Vireo lacks the kinglet’s black patch below the second wing bar. Also note the thicker bill; lores and eye ring are whitish in color, but eye ring is broken above the eye.

Nests in trees or shrubs, building a cup shaped structure from moss and spiders silk and lined with fine grasses. Eats mostly insects and spiders; also some small fruits.
