Black-whiskered Vireo

Vireo altiloquus ORDER: PASSERIFORMES FAMILY: VIREONIDAE

IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern

A bird of Caribbean forests, the Black-whiskered Vireo reaches the United States only in southern Florida. Restricted to mangroves in Florida, it lives in other upland forest types in the rest of the Caribbean.

Calls

Song a broken series of slurred notes, with distinct pauses between the notes. Each phrase usually ends in either a downslur or an upswing, as if the bird asks a question, then answers it, over and over. Call a catbird-like "myaah."
