- Greetings, Mendobirders
Last Saturday, 28 Aug 2004, I saw a RED-EYED VIREO shortly after
sunrise in some valley oaks along West Road near the Potter Valley
Cemetery. I heard some weak, Cassin's-like singing, and, as it was fall, I
decided to try to get a look. When I got it in the binoculars, I realized I
had an eyeline vireo and not an eyering vireo. It played hide and seek in
the upper branches, but I finally got an identifying look - red eye and
all. Then it flew off to the south over pastures, and I did not see it
again. I looked again Sunday and Monday, but no luck.
