Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas)A wrenlike warbler, the adult male has a black “mask” and a yellow throat, whereas the immature male has a faint black “mask.”  The female has the yellow throat, but does not have the black “mask.”  Like other warblers, the yellowthroats are recognized by their whitish belly and brownish sides.  Their habitat consists of open fields and meadows, but they are known to live in marshes and swamps as well.
