These little guys were listed as a state endangered species in 1980 and a federally endangered species in 1986. Happily, they seem to be making a comeback. The largest populations occur on Camp Pendleton and in the Prado Basin. You can find them at Prado Regional Park and San Joaquin Marsh in Irvine. They have a distinct song described at “tweeedle-deedle-dum? tweedle-deedle-dee!” First phrase up, second phrase down. This picture was taken by Kim Moore of a vireo in Seal Beach, singing with the passion of a miniature mockingbird.
