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.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
