Can we identify this fuzzy picture.

Recommended Posts

I'd go with Red-eyed Vireo based on the large, hooked bill, hint of a dark eyeline and cap, reddish eyes, and greenish back with no wingbars.

I agree with TBN. You do not see the red in the eyes very often.

The actual eye color is often hard to distinguish in the field. Funny thing about the eyes of the REVI... the HY birds have brown irises and they usually change to full red irises by the following Spring. However, there are some birds do not change until they are SY(second year) birds and even some ASY(after second year) birds can still show a brownish cast to the eye.
