Yellow warblers arrive in early May and are found all around Falmouth. They prefer moist, open woodlands with thick, low vegetation. Many years ago, a warbler expert named Frank Chapman described the yellow warbler as “a bit of feathered sunshine. In his plumes dwells the gold of the sun, in his voice his brightness and good cheer.” Yellow warblers have bright yellow bodies and males have vertical red breast streaks. They are persistent singers, like this one found in thickets in the northeast corner of Salt Pond off Mill Street. Go to to share comments and feedback.
