LWAS Bird of the Month

Yellow Warbler Setophaga petechia – A splash of yellow in a patch of willow. Aptly named, the Yellow Warbler is found throughout much of North America in habitats briefly categorized as wet, deciduous thickets. One common feature of the Yellow Warbler habitat is the presence of various species of willows (Salix spp.), which dominate regions with high densities of Yellow Warblers, such as in southern Canada, and regions where the species is sparse and local in distribution, as in the southwestern U.S. For populations of Yellow Warblers south of U.S. borders, mangroves are a dominant feature of their habitat.
