BE AWARE THAT HABITAT TYPE MORE THAN ANY OTHER FACTOR, WILL IN MOST CASES, DICTATE THE SPECIES OF BIRD THAT VISIT YOUR PROPERTY.

How to Attract Red Eyed Vireo

A swift ÔÇô constantly singing deciduous forest bird, the Red-Eyed Vireo is bad news for prospective butterflies ÔÇô as up to 50% of its summer diet is composed of caterpillars. This olive-colored bird will also eat other insects, so fostering an insect friendly environment is key to attracting it. Caterpillar friendly trees like Oak, Beech and Maple are Red-Eyed Vireo favorites. In addition to insects, the Red-Eyed Vireo will eat small berries ÔÇô especially towards fall migration ÔÇô so planting and maintaining berry producing shrubs like Elderberry and Arrowwood make sense.
