Nesting of the Solitary Vireo in the Talladega National Forest

Published in 1980

The Solitary Vireo (Vireo solitarius) occurs as a migrant throughout Alabama and as a winter resident in the southern half of the State and rarely but regularly in the northern half (Imhof, 1976). Several May and June records in the Tennessee Valley and Mountain Region have suggested that the species might
breed in the State. The discovery by the author of a nesting pair of Solitary Vireos,. several bonded pairs and numerous singing males in the Talladega National Forest in Cleburne County confirms the species as a breeding bird in Alabama.
