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: 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!
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.
