Tuesday Tweets

 Blue-headed Vireo
The blue-headed vireo was once called the solitary vireo. However after some study the solitary vireo was divided into three distinct species. The plumbeous, Cassin's, and blue-headed vireo. The blue-headed vireo has a more easterly range then the other two species, with a breeding range through out the eastern two thirds of Canada and the north eastern United States. They winter in Mexico, Central America, and along the  Gulf coast. This one stopped by for a few days during the spring migration.

Welcome to Tuesday Tweets! To join in the fun just post a photo of a bird and then link it by here by using the handy dandy link below. Then make sure you visit other sites to do a little bird watching.

I would love to see one of these, I find it so hard to identify some of the vireos and flycatchers as they move quickly through the trees. Great shot!
