I was fortunate to find a nesting pair of Yellowthroats earlier this summer. They were busy feeding their young ones and the number of dragonflies that were consumed was staggering!
The males are more colorful with a bandit like mask of black across the eyes. More dragonflies in his beak for the nestlings.
I was happy to capture this interaction between the male and female while they were feeding their young.

Always a joy to read one of your posts. There’s nothing common about these beautiful birds. Thanks for sharing.

You captured this pair well. Love their song.
Thanks! They were fun to watch.
