Red-Eyed Vireo

2nd migrant of the year

This red eyed vireo was singing high up in the oak trees around my yard. The same day, I saw the first Mississippi kite of the year; pretty exciting! Kites are pretty common here in the summer.

Watched this Red-eyed Vireo and its mate bring pieces of grass and other plant matter to weave into the cup nest and shape it with their bodies.
