" is a Latin word referring to a green migratory bird. Vireos
are typically dull-plumaged and greenish in color, the smaller species resembling wood warblers apart from their heavier bills.
species are found in Middle America and northern South America. Thirteen species of true vireos occur farther north, in the United States, Bermuda and Canada; of these all but Hutton's vireo are migratory. Members of the family seldom fly long distances except in migration. They inhabit forest environments, with different species preferring forest canopies, undergrowth, or mangrove swamps.
