Song is a steady series of roughly 3-note phrases that end on an upswing or downswing, as if the bird is asking and answering a question, over and over. It is similar to the songs of several other vireo species, including Red-eyed and Blue-headed.© Timothy Barksdale | Macaulay LibraryNew York, May 30, 2004
