Hutton’s Vireo

Hutton’s vireo (Vireo huttoni) is a small songbird in the Vireonidae family. It is found from southern British Columbia in Canada to central Guatemala in Central America.

It prefers deciduous-mixed forests, and is particularly fond of live oak. It feeds by gleaning insects as it deliberately moves through the forest canopy.

Hutton’s Vireos’ known prey items include assassin bugs, stinkbugs, leaf bugs, leafhoppers, planthoppers, scale insects, lady beetles, weevils, and caterpillars. Plant matter in their diet includes berries of buckthorn, poison oak, and elderberry as well as sap from sapsucker wells.
