This past Saturday I had a fun time looking for rarities at Orlando Wetlands Park--Vermilion Flycatcher (found) and Groove-billed Ani (missed). Along the way, I heard the familiar sounds of Common Yellowthroats grunting at me. I decided to stop for a few minutes, and one in particular was being rather photogenic, so I took a few photos. They're one of our most common warblers, especially in winter near water, but they can be found all year round. Sometimes I just ignore them and walk by, but why? This is a beautiful bird. It deserves some love despite being common, don't you think?
Pretty little bird, I wouldn't get bored of it.ReplyDelete
It's always a pleasure to see the Common Yellowthroats. You are lucky to see them year round, as we see them spring (May) through fall. Terrific photographs of the handsome bird, Scott!ReplyDelete
