The Philadelphia Vireo (Vireo philadelphicus) is an uncommon, forest-dwelling, neotropical migrant restricted in British Columbia to the Boreal Plains and Taiga Plains ecoprovinces. It is a habitat generalist, but its distribution is linked with the distribution of deciduous-dominated forests. Relatively few data exist on populations, habitat use, or breeding productivity. The limits of its distribution are not well known. Although little is known about its ecology in British Columbia, the threat to habitat caused by timber harvesting is the primary cause for concern. However, because of its apparent preference for edge habitats and younger, rather than older, aspen and mixedwood stands, the long-term consequences of large-scale timber harvesting will likely be neutral or possibly positive, rather than negative. The Philadelphia Vireo should remain on the Blue List because of its small, scattered populations, restricted distribution, the general lack of data available, lack of reserves, and uncertainties arou
