New Bird Photographed – White-eyed Vireo

White-eyed Vireo

This may very well be the prize of migration for me.  While hiking Saturday at Peach Hill, I heard a very strange song from one of the birds in the park.  I didn’t recognize it at all.

It was singing in a tree completely hidden, so I slowly walked around hoping to find in opening in the leaves to see what it was.  Finally, I had a small gap in the leaves to take a few pictures.  He quickly moved, but I got a good luck at it.  It was a white-eyed vireo, a bird that is labeled in the Sibley guidebook as a rare sighting to this area.  I was overjoyed to even get a glimpse!

Even better?  I got a few photographs as proof!  I don’t think I’ll be forgetting his song anytime soon either.  This vireo is now the 137th bird photographed in Dutchess County.
