As spring migration nears, here is a bird that people are always excited to see this time of year for today’s Wildlife Wednesday, the yellow-throated warbler.
Many birds are intimately associated with certain plants, and this species is an excellent example. In fact, the yellow-throated warbler was formerly known as the “sycamore warbler” because of its intimate relationship with that tree. Yellow-throated warblers return in early April, one of the earliest warblers to return. Their sweet song is a descending series of slurred whistles, normally delivered from high in the tree tops.
