Red-eyed Vireo With Berry
Original, Oil on Panel, 4 x 4 inches
Three birds distinctively remind me of my childhood in Wisconsin: Whip-poor-wills, Red-eyed Vireos, and Eastern Wood-Pewees. I'm glad vireos, like this Red-eyed Vireo, are reliable summertime companions in Minnesota, where I live now. These days, there isn't a single bird I take for granted, so I'm quite happy when I hear them return every year.
