This is one of an active group of birds that I was able to lure in quite close to me with pishing. Juvenile. Taken on my way back from Port Aransas to Austin at the old Plum Creek Bridge just southeast of Luling.
White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus)
11 August 2015: Observed several White-eyed Vireos moving across some small trees on the side of the Onion Creek Trail closest to the Upper Falls at McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, Texas. As they moved fast, one stopped long enough to be able to take but one digital image of it. The vireo appears to be molting. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) administers McKinney Falls State Park.
This indivual was making an atypical song (at least to me). Sounded almost like a mimid, but softer.
8 April 2015: Observed a White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus) on the Rookery Trail at the Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center (CCNHC) in Denton, Texas. Heard it singing in the vicinity of a red cedar so we stopped for a few minutes in the hope that it might reappear and it did. It perched on an adjacent redbud tree that was in full bloom given the season.

29 March 2015: Observed a White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus) on a hiking trail in McKinney Falls State Park next to Onion Creek in Austin, Texas.
The White-eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus) is a small songbird. It breeds in the southeastern USA from New Jersey west to northern Missouri and south to Texas and Florida, and also in eastern Mexico, northern Central America, Cuba and the Bahamas.
