Description

Female plumbeous vireo on the nest. Nest is located along a trail in the Sandia National Forest, off the Sandia Crest Highway. I was hiking and heard a vireo calling; we called back and forth a few times . After a short walk, I saw the bird hopping around in a juniper tree adjacent to the trail. Another bird joined, the male flew off. I was watching through the binos and saw the female sit down, and soon realized she was on the nest. I got the picture using the telephoto on the point and shoot camera, from the other side of the trail.
