Common Yellowthroat


(Geothylpis trichas)

One of the most commonly heard and seen wood-warblers, the male Common Yellowthroat looks like a small yellow thief with its black mask.  It is often seen in marshes, reeds, or other low vegetation, usually at eye level or lower.  Its loud “witchity, witchity, witchity” song is very easy to recognize.
