Yellow-green vireo        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The yellow-green vireo is the tropical counterpart of the red-eyed vireo that breeds in North America.   They are one of the commonest birds in forests and gardens in Central America and their loud calls make them easy to locate.   They also occasionally stray to the north of their normal range, as did two of the birds shown here. One was at a dairy farm near Moss Landing and the other was on the coast of Pacific Grove, both in California   The three 'tropical-looking' photos at the bottom of the page were made near Gamboa, Panama.
