Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus) Science Article 1 abstract We compared nest placement and characteristics of nesting habitat used by Red-eyed Vireos(Vireo olivaceous) in deciduous forests of central Pennsylvania during the breeding seasons of 1998 and 1999.Nest patches versus random patches (0.04-ha circular plots centered on nests or random points, respectively)and successful versus unsuccessful nest patches […]

RED-EYED VIREOS HAVE DIFFICULTY RECOGNIZINGINDIVIDUAL NEIGHBORS’ SONGS

Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus) Science Article 3 abstract I investigated recognition of individual neighbors’ songs in a migratory species with large repertoires, the Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceous). To test for abilities to recognize individual neighbors, I measured responses to playbacks of neighbors songs from appropriateand inappropriate boundaries in two different years. Because the responses to […]

STATUS OF THE PHILADELPHIA VIREOIN BRITISH COLUMBIA

Philadelphia Vireo (Vireo philadelphicus) Science Article 1 abstract The Philadelphia Vireo (Vireo philadelphicus) is an uncommon, forest-dwelling, neotropical migrantrestricted in British Columbia to the Boreal Plains and Taiga Plains ecoprovinces. It is a habitatgeneralist, but its distribution is linked with the distribution of deciduous-dominated forests. Relativelyfew data exist on populations, habitat use, or breeding productivity. […]
