Friday Bird Blogging: The Common Yellowthroat

These are fairly abundant warblers but their populations are declining. Cornell reports its status as:
Not threatened or endangered, but is decreasing in many areas. Local nonmigratory populations in some areas face potential extinction from habitat loss and disturbance.
Though the bird looks fairly distinctive, it's easy to be fooled by fall warblers. This picture, for example, is a common yellowthroat as well, but the black face is not present on females or juvenile males.
