Common Yellowthroat

A personal favorite characteristic of mine are birds with masks. The Common Yellowthroat's wide black mask is at the top of the list for "Best mask"!



It's "wichety-witchety-witchety" call is a very distinctive sound, but seeing one requires a bit of luck.

Hi,
These are gorgeous pictures and the first one singing is awesome. The background is so nice and homogeneous that it looks like a painting!!! Wonderful shots!
