Despite the close relationship and shared habitat between this species and the Cassin’s Vireo, no cases of hybridization are known between the two.
It was formerly considered to belong to the same species as Cassin's Vireo and Blue-headed Vireo. At that time, they were referred to as the "Solitary Vireo".
A group of vireos are collectively known as a "call" of vireos.

The Plumbeous Vireo has a large range, estimated globally at 1,300,000 square kilometers. Native to the United States and Mexico as well as Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, this bird prefers temperate, subtropical, or tropical forest ecosystems. The global population of this bird is estimated at 2,700,000 individuals and does not show signs of decline that would necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. For this reason, the current evaluation status of the Plumbeous Vireo is Least Concern.
