Bell’s Vireo – A Quivira Passerine

Birds of the wetlands are definitely the primary attraction and our focus for our visit to Quivira NWR.  But, of course, we had to keep an eye out to see what “land birds” we could find.  Quivira has a few wood lots to explore on foot, but is setup splendidly for birding from a vehicle.  Driving near some shrub, we heard that familiar song.  It took Steve and I a couple repetitions, but we eventually ID’d the singer by voice and waited for him to make an appearance.  This one turned out to be one of my favorite images of the trip.
