First Year Male Common Yellowthroat

Stopping beside a group of bushes overlooking a water area; I heard a small , sharp 'chirp' and in the branches beside me, about a meter away, I saw this young, male Common Yellowthroat Warbler looking at me. The beginnings of the black mask, character -istic of the adult male Common Yellow- throat, was evident and its forehead was brown; these markings made the identification of this little warbler rather easy.
