Yellow Warbler
Dendroica petechia
The Yellow Warbler is a small songbird with a thin pointed beak. It is mostly yellow in colour and the male has reddish streaks on his chest. The Yellow Warbler stands around 12-12cm (5-6 inches) in height, has a wing-span of 16-20cm (6-8 inches), and weighs approximately 9-11grams (0.32-0.39 ounces).

The Yellow Warbler has indistinct yellow wing bars, yellow spots on its tail and black eyes which are surrounded by indistinct yellow eye rings.

The female has duller colouring with very faint red streaks or no streaks at all.Infant Yellow Warblers are similar to the adult female, but paler and duller, usually without reddish chest streaks. Their yellow tail spots are reduced are more faded.

The Yellow Warbler feeds on insects and other arthropods, occasionally fruit.They capture insects by gleaning, fly catching, and hovering.

Their song is a 'sweet sweet sweet' chorus, which is beautiful to the ears.

Hello Selen,
Oh, I like your note when you say that you NEED to swim; I'm quite like this too but I swim in lakes, not in the sea like you probably do :) This is such a beautiful capture of this cute bird. I'm amazed by the proximity you got. We have them here as well and they are not easy to photograph. Details, pose, composition, colors and exposure are perfect. This really is a great picture. Congrats and have a superb weekend! Thanks,

  • Great

Hi Selen,
Splendid shot of the Yellow warbler captured with fine details on its plumage and nice colours. Superb focus and lighting here and you have captured a majestic pose. Excellent POV and a nice composition. Kudos.

Hi Selen,

I fully understand if you don't have the time, it has been a while since I have been here. Very nice picture, the BG is nicely blurred thanks to a good DOF. Nice pose, well done.


Hi Selen, Stunning shot, excellent detail as always, very nice indeed, hope you have a great weekend too, Cheers Rick :)

The sun is really in your favour for this shot Selen. Of course the composition is up to your usual good standard.
I feel the same way as you with my work now, but worse because I have not taken any photos for a while.
I hope you have a nice time.

Hi Selen,

Very nice shot with good colors and sharness, I like it


Hello Selen,
A pleasant composition with this beautiful little fellow!
Good details in the plumage and a well composed presentation!
