Gray vireo        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The gray vireos is a poorly known species of dry shrublands in the arid southwestern USA and Mexico.   They occur dependably in only a few spots in southern California.   I photographed these near Santa Rosa Peak and in the hills of southern San Diego County.
