Wednesday, April 29, 2020 Y is for Yellow Throat!

2020 A to Z Challenge!
Y is for the Yellow Warbler! 
 

North America has more than 50 species of warblers, but few combine brilliant color and easy viewing quite like the Yellow Warbler. In summer, the buttery yellow males sing their sweet whistled song from willows, wet thickets, and roadsides across almost all of North America. The females and immatures aren’t as bright, and lack the male’s rich chestnut streaking, but their overall warm yellow tones, unmarked faces, and prominent
 black eyes help pick them out. 


 Yellow Warblers eat mostly insects, so they don’t come to backyard feeders. Larger yards that have small trees or are near streams may provide nesting habitat for these birds.

  1. This is a new warbler for me. How pretty they are. We get goldfinch for yellow, but I haven't seen any of them for awhile. Maybe still down south?
