I have never seen this little bird before.


What a well camouflaged little lady!

Now I have to pause lookup this species!


Well, I’d at least have to go South to Mexico to find this birds.

According to Wikipedia “the plain antvireo feeds like a vireo of the songbirdfamily Vireonidae, hence its common name.”

“It forages for small insects and other arthropods taken from twigs and foliage in the lower branches of trees. It usually does not join mixed-species feeding flocks often, preferring to keep its distance from other species it encounters when attending army antswarms.”
