    Gray Vireo

    Vireo vicinior
    • ORDER: Passeriformes
    • FAMILY: Vireonidae
    Basic Description

    A small, drab bird of desert scrub, the Gray Vireo shows only faint traces of the typical vireo spectacles and wingbars. Its dull gray plumage, however, fits in well with other dull gray birds that share its habitat, including gnatcatchers, Bushtit, Juniper Titmouse, and Lucy's Warbler.
