Philadelphia Vireo, Vireo gilvus: Magee Marsh, Ohio

     While Warbling Vireos were very numerous at Magee Marsh this year, I only saw a few Philadelphia Vireos during my time at the marsh.  The Philadelphia Vireo looks similar to the Warbling Vireo (see earlier post below) but can be separated from the Philadelphia by the a dark eye line that extends through the lores, and yellow wash at the center of the throat and breast.  Also, their song is quite similar to the Red-eyed Vireo.
