Common Yellowthroat

The Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas) is found across almost all of British Columbia during summer. It is very much a marsh bird and is rarely seen outside brushy/grassy habitats. They nest in tall grasses or reeds on or close to the ground. The males have a broad black band that runs across their eyes and is bordered on the top by a white stripe, which females lack. They are a type of wood warbler, like many other yellow songbirds that breed in BC during the summer.
