Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-eyed Vireo

(Vireo olivaceus)

Where: Cape Charles, VA • Kiptopeke State Park

Notes: This image comes from a recent fall trip to one of our favorite places out on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The fall migrants were passing in small flocks throughout the premises. Several times we counted nearly a dozen mixed birds in such groups, comprising of nuthatches, vireos and multiple warbler species. A little "pishing and sushing" would occasionally entice a couple of birds the edge of the pathway. This Vireo was very cooperative and sat relatively still for a few minutes. It even changed perches a couple of times offering me a couple different settings and poses. I was pleased with the exposure, that I decreased a little, to protect the white underbelly of this bird from over exposing. The low angle of the fall light kept the contrast from being too harsh. While considered common during breeding season, in my experience these birds are difficult to photograph because they lurk around in the dense foliage at the top of the tree canopy most of the time. So, it was a real treat to have this bird pop out and sit in one of the young Wild Cherry trees along the edge of the open field area at Kiptopeke.
