Least Bell's Vireo (8929) (Conservation Status: Near Threatened)

The Least Bell's Vireo (Vireo bellii pusillus), is an endangered subspecies in Southern California. Consideration of Bell's Vireo has been a factor in several land development projects, to protect Least Bell's Vireo habitat. The decline of the Least Bell's Vireo is mostly due to a loss of riparian habitat and brood parasitism by the Cowbird (Molothrus ater). (This is an excerpt from Wikipedia)
