I'm the Gulf of Mexico

Red-eyed Vireo

The wondrous hardwood trees in coastal swamps and bottomlands--now that's a place where we Red-eyed Vireos can settle in and raise our babies. This insect-rich habitat is a lovely place to spend the breeding season, and many of us hug the coast as we migrate to Central and South America so we can find plenty of food to fuel our journeys. I love my home.
