Blue-headed Vireos used to aptly be called Solitary Vireos as they generally eschew the company of humans as well as other birds. So, I am always pleased when one or two shows up here during fall migration. I consider them a high-value target compared to some of the more common species.

If a target, you put the bulls-eye smack dab on him. Well done, my friend!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, Rog; it's what keeps me going.

Aw shucks, and I thought it was the birds.:lol:

When do you start seeing those white flakes up there in "tundra-land"?

Oh, I've seen it snow a couple inches in September and October, but it usually doesn't get serious until November and later. Oddly enough it has yet to freeze here; that's most unusual.

Thank you, Pitter. I think it was changed a while back. Some of these changes are hard to incorporate and I have to work so as not to revert. ;-)a

Thank you very much, Bob. I'm glad to see you back in the saddle and no doubt you've had some difficulties to face down in your neck of the woods.

We were lucky thanks. It moved a little south and spared us. The keys were not so lucky
