The Warbling Vireo (Vireo gilvus) is a songbird (also known as a passerine) that breeds in BC during the summer. It is found across the entire province usually in mature deciduous stands, which they prefer to nest and feed in. They tend to live close to water where there is a good source of insects for them to feed on. They are less colourful compared to some other summer breeders but still quite beautiful. They have a light grey back, wings and head and a cream coloured belly, throat and “eyebrow.” Their “warbling” song is very distinctive and gives them their name.
