Stunning species of the Parulidae family, the Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas) is quite easily recognizable thanks to its bright yellow chest and black maks. Notice as well the white line right above it. Often hidden inside vegetation, it is always a great pleasure to see them in the clear to enjoy their beautiful colors.
