The Yellowthroat

This bird is so beautiful! It’s like a small kiskadee. I’m going to miss this challenge when it finally comes to an end, but I have a few ideas in store for another one. Enjoy this beauty!

๐Ÿฆ Where the adult males are bright yellow with a sharp black mask on the face, the females lack the black mask; they’re plain and olive brown.

๐Ÿฆย Yellowthroats live in open areas (marshes being their hot spot). During migration, they might be found in forests or backyards.ย

๐Ÿฆ These small songbirds are also known as a New World Warbler.ย
