Where the Birds Are Latest Post:

May 31:  Red-eyed Vireos can be found in broadleaf forests such as at Summit Creek – a great birding hotspot in the Creston Valley. Since they are mostly camouflaged in the foliage, they are best found by their loud song which is a hurried phase sounding as if they are saying- “here-I-am, in-the-tree, look-up, at-the-top”!!! June and July is their breeding season so they will be singing in the forests the next couple of months!
