Common Yellowthroat

It always seems odd that we call this delightfully masked male Warbler a Common Yellowthroat. Every time I’m lucky enough to spot this little bandit, he strikes me as un-commonly handsome!

“Abundant and well-known, the Common Yellowthroat has succeeded by being a nonconformist. As the only one of our warblers that will nest in open marshes, it is found in practically every reed-bed and patch of cattails from coast to coast.” (

Now found throughout most of North America, the Common Yellowthroat was one of the earliest species of birds to be described from the New World. It was initially dubbed the Maryland Yellowthroat, since it was first found in that state.” (American Bird Conservancy)
