Yellow Warbler


(Setophaga petechia - formerly Dendroica petechia)

One of the most widespread North American wood-warblers, the conspicuous Yellow Warbler is easily located by its familiar phonetic “sweet, sweet, I’m so sweet” song, and easily seen because it often perches at eye level.  Males show red breast streaking. Confusing first year fall females can be dull gray and may show almost no yellow at all.
