Common Yellowthroat

The following Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas) warbler was spotted during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 21 April 2014. This individual is a male, as indicated by its coloration.

I was on my way out of the park when a small unknown rodent caught my attention in the marsh alongside the boardwalk. As I waited for the rodent to reappear from its nest, this handsome little bird perched nearby just long enough for a couple of quick shots.

    Your wonderful images really capture the gorgeous colors of this little bird. Most of the time I get only a partial glimpse of the yellowthroats through a tangle of branches, so it’s really nice to get an unobstructed view of this little beauty.
