White-eyed Vireos are common, and have seen slight increases to their population in recent years. However, its favored habitat is rarely protected and is often cleared. Outdoor cats are also a significant threat to this bird because of its tendency to nest low, and migrating White-eyed Vireos are frequent victims of collisions with structures such as communications towers.
White-eyed Vireos live in dense, scrubby areas including overgrown pastures, forested edges, streamside thickets, second-growth forests, and bramble-filled fields.
