A Yellow Bird for Mellow Yellow Monday

Last evening just as I was starting to think of what to post for mellow yellow Monday ion the morning, this yellow bird flew into Bird Alley.
I was delighted of course. I have seen few warblers this summer so for a beautiful yellow one to visit bird alley was a real treat.I have decided this is maybe a female adult yellow warbler, as it is so overall yellow! at first I had though maybe it was a Pine warbler as I could see it has 'yellow spectacles around its eyes, but it wing bars were not very distinct so I settled on the bright yellow clue distinguishing this bird as a yellow warbler.Got pictures with yellow that you would like to share? Why not post them on Mellow Yellow Monday, a delightful meme that focuses on the colour yellow?Just clink here:http://mellowyellowmonday.blogspot.com/ to access this meme

Good for you. I find it so frustrating identifying birds - one slight change in markings and you have it all wrong!
She is beautiful, whichever she is.

That looks like a quick little bird!

DON’T LET THAT YELLOW GO TO YOUR HEAD

Don’t let that yellow go to your head!
Simply be glad it’s not puce or red!
Give thanks for the color dear to your heart:
Honey and lemon and cream— a good start!

It is beautiful. We don't have those around here but we do have the American Goldfinch which I think is very pretty.
