Yellow Warbler

Yesterday at lunch I had the good fortune to discover this brightly colored warbler in a grove of willows further west along the creek in Superior that I had visited earlier in the week.

Even for me, the almost universal yellow color makes this species a quick ID. If there is any doubt though, check the front for the reddish streaks.

For such a bright bird it did a great job of tucking itself in with the new growth leaves for cover.

Of course like all warblers the Yellow Warbler is constantly in motion, and eventually was on its way to different, hopefully buggier, trees.
