Yucatan Vireo

The Yucatan Vireo is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Yucatan Vireo, which winter in small wandering flocks. Voice and breeding - Males of most species are persistent singers. Songs are usually rather simple, ranging from monotonous, in some species of the Caribbean littoral and islands, to elaborate and pleasant to human ears in the Chocó Vireo. Calls often include "scolding chatters and mews". More

The Yucatan Vireo (Vireo magister) is a species of bird in the Vireonidae family. It is found in Belize, Honduras and Mexico. There is a well-documented record from High Island, Texas, in 1984, but this is the only record for the United States. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and heavily degraded former forest. References - * BirdLife International 2004. Vireo magister.

The Yucatan Vireo has a tiny world distribution, being mainly confined to islands and keys in the Caribbean, close to the mainland of Mexico (Quintana Roo only), Belize and Honduras. The only place where they can be seen in our region is on the Bay Islands, off the north coast of Honduras. I didn’t see them during brief birding trips when I visited Utila, but they were common and conspicuous when I visited Roatan. More

Yucatan Vireo, which winter in small wandering flocks (Salaman & Barlow 2003). Voice and breeding - The song of the Rufous-browed Peppershrike is described as a whistled phrase with the rhythm About this sound Do you wash every week? (help·info) Males of most species are persistent singers. More

Bobwhite, Yucatan Vireo, Yucatan Parrot, Mexican Sheartail, Rose-throated Tanager, Orange Oriole, Black Catbird, and Ocellated Turkey. There are also an additional three endemics on Isla Cozumel including: Cozumel Emerald, Cozumel Vireo, and Cozumel Wren. The Cozumel Thrasher hasn't been documented in about ten years, but hopefully it's still extant. The state of Yucatan also boasts the only colony of American Flamingos in Mexico, with over 30,000 individuals. More

encounter Yucatan Vireo and several species of orioles, among other species. We then head off to Felipe Carrillo Puerto, stopping at one or two localities en route. Night at Felipe Carrillo Puerto. Day 3 and 4 - Felipe Carrillo Puerto We spend two mornings and one afternoon exploring the Vigía Chico road, a wide limestone road surrounded by tropical deciduous forest richer in species than the forests further north on the peninsula.

endemic Vireo, but had instead photographed the Yucatan Vireo which happens to be endemic to the Yucatan Peninsula. Since this was the Yucatan RAVE....I didn't feel too bad about this news and we did end up photographing the real Cozumel endemic Vireo several days later. A quick note regarding the shooting conditions: The long dry season had ended a week before my arrival with daily heavy rain storms coming in the afternoon and lasting most evening. More

Yucatan Vireos and Black Catbirds were especially abundant. In the afternoon we went to El Cedral, where highlights were a Black-whiskered Vireo and a Gray Kingbird. We drove around the island past Punta Sur (which was closed due to road repair, so we didn't see if any of the terns were back), where there was another Gray Kingbird. Along the east beach was an apparent breeding colony of Least Terns. More
