Yellow warbler

Setophaga petechia

Description:

Winter, female and immature birds all have similarly greenish-yellow uppersides and are a duller yellow below. Young males soon acquire breast and, where appropriate, head coloration. Females are somewhat duller, most notably on the head. In all, the remiges and rectrices are blackish olive with yellow edges, sometimes appearing as an indistinct wing-band on the former. The eyes and the short thin beak are dark, while the feet are lighter or darker olive-buff

Habitat:

Woodland areas, around ponds and streams, in backyards.

Notes:

Wanted to share my first sighting of this kind of warbler. It was last year, but I thought I would post anyway.
