About The Black-capped Vireo

The range of V. atricapilla extends from Northern, Western and Central Texas to Northern Mexico. During the summer V. atricapilla breeds primarily in the Edward's Plateau of Central Texas. In the winter (non-breeding season), V. atricapilla can be found in the flatlands and Pacific foothills of Western Mexico (throughout the states of Sonora and Guerrero). (Scott 1987; Tveten 1987)
