Philadelphia Vireo

Yesterday, prior to a spring thunderstorm a few migrating Philadelphia Vireo visited our flowering plum. The flowers attracted pollinating insects which attracted the vireos.

Philadelphia Vireos are very acrobatic, they hovered before the flowers,
and hung upside down to feed.
These vireos will move into Canada.
A couple severe thunderstorms have destroyed the blossoms today, the vireos were our visual climax!
