Plumbeous Vireo (Vireo plumbeus)

Where to Find: During migration, vireos can be found everywhere, but when you look for them, they are nowhere to be found; check Corn Creek, the Henderson BVP, urban parks (e.g., Lorenzi and Sunset parks). During summer, check higher-elevation places with forests such as Red Rock Canyon NCA (Willow Springs), Mt. Charleston (Fletcher Canyon) and the Desert National Wildlife Range (Mormon Well area).
