What’s that flash of yellow in the trees? A bumblebee? An escaped canary? No, it’s a yellow warbler!
They are quite common, here in the Peace Country an all over the Americas. Except, they are very shy and very quick, so you have to be quick as well if you want to catch sight of them. A pile of brush is a good place to start looking.
Both males and females are bright yellow, but the males have a little more colour ornamentation in their feathers.
It might be easier to listen for these birds than to spot them. They call “sweet sweet, sweet than sweet!” You can hear a recording here.
The yellow warbler is a sweet little bird! Have you spotted one lately?
