The Puerto Rican Vireo is endemic to Puerto Rico. It frequents various types of forests and is common in this habitat. It moves through the foliage when foraging in trees.
Its Puerto Rican name, “Bien-te-veo”, comes from its melodious song. It is also named Latimer’s Vireo, and this name pays tribute to George Latimer, consul to Puerto Rico in the 19th century.
