In the East they can be seen in the foliage of tall trees and in the West can be seen in thickets or chaparral. Females are similar it the males but have less blue in their plumage and, like the juvenile male, lack the black line on the crown. The high thin speee speee speee notes, sounding like a baby bird, may attract attention before the tiny bird is seen.
Sings a low-pitched trilling zee-you, zee-you, heard infrequently. It’s call, which is given often, is a pwee or speee, inflected like a question.
