Common yellowthroat (male)

Geothlypis trichas


I find these small songbirds in tall grass and reeds foraging for insects. Males have a black mask with a white border and a yellow throat and breast. Females lack the mask and have less yellow.


Spotted at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge in tall grass bordering one of the wetlands.
