Red-eyed Vireo – a rare American guest

American vagrants are rare in Iceland but usually there is a bird or two that accidentally gets blown over here every year. The Red-eyed Vireo  (Vireo olivaceus) is one of the most common small American vagrants and has been recorded here 21 times. This little vagrant has been seen twice in Selfoss and once here in our garden.
