The Common Yellowthroat is a New World warbler and breeds abundantly in North America. It is a small songbird that has an olive back, wings and tail, a yellow throat and chest and a white belly. The adult male has a black face mask that stretches from the sides of the neck across the eye and forehead. Females are similar in appearance but are paler underneath and lack the black mask.
The Common Yellowthroat breeds on marshes and other wet areas with dense low vegetation or shrub and lays 3-5 eggs in a cup-shaped nest. It feeds mainly on insects.
