Red-eyed Vireo

Red-eyed Vireo9087bAs far as really friendly birds go, the Red-eyed Vireo has to be way up on the list. They have frequently approached me, seemingly to welcome me to the bog and wish me well on my journey. I’ve missed so many shots of this bird because they were just too close. They have a couple of calls and even those are polite, quite, and friendly. They build an amazing hanging basket of a nest out of grass and spider webs, and return each year to dismantle the old nest and rebuild it nearby. Everyone should be so lucky to be greeted by a Red-eyed Vireo, a truly lovely little bird.
