Bird of the Week for March 29: Common Yellowthroat

 The common yellowthroat (male shown here) is a pretty warbler that lives in brushy marsh habitats; these guys are often seen closer to the ground where they bop around alone or in pairs foraging on insects, caterpillars, and spiders. Their nests are loose bulky cups of grasses/plant materials that are down near or on the ground. The females incubate the eggs for 12 days. The young are fed by both sexes and stay in the nests for 8-10 days.
