The brown-capped vireo (Vireo leucophrys), resident in Central America and northern South America, is sometimes considered conspecific with the Warbling Vireo. It has olive-green upperparts and a brown crown. There is a brown line from the bill through the eyes, and a white supercilium. The face and throat are off-white, and the underparts are otherwise yellow with some olive on the flanks. The brown-capped vireo can be found in the canopy and middle levels of light woodland, the edges of forest, and other semi-open habitats at altitudes from 700 to 2500 m.
