In the local birding world, breeding season is now in full swing! From backyard sparrows, finches, and warblers; to robins, cardinals, and singing towhees, Falmouth is alive and full of nesting birds! Among the better-known warblers, the Common Yellowthroat is found in a wide variety of nesting habitats that are typically brushy and damp. The Yellowthroat is known as an energetic songster and is a favorite because of its small size, bright plumage, and engaging disposition. The male has olive-green upperparts, a yellow throat, and a broad black face mask.
