    Female Yellow Warbler -Dendroica petechia
    Female Yellow Warbler, Dendroica petechia, Order PASSERIFORMES - Family PARULIDAE. My first confirmed warbler sightings this spring. This warbler was found on a very wonderful late-April day in Shaker Trace Wetlands in the Miami Whitewater Forest area in SW Ohio. Wow!

    (Photo: April 24, 2004, Canon 10D, EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM, 1.4x teleconverter EF ll lens, manual focus)

    "Although many warblers are yellow, the Yellow Warbler is the most extensively yellow of any species. This widespread species of willows and mangroves is the only warbler with yellow tail spots. Male bright yellow with reddish streaks on chest, female duller with red streaks absent or reduced. In addition to the migratory form of the Yellow Warbler that breeds in North America, several other resident forms can be found in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. The nests of the Yellow Warbler are frequently parasitized by the Brown-headed Cowbird. Winters in Mexico, Central and South America. reeds from northern Alaska and Canada southward to middle United States, and in West into Mexico."
