Meet Yellow Warbler, A Strikingly Beautiful Bird With Bright Yellow Plumage Flecked With Rufous

Yellow is a stunning color shade. When it’s delicately dyed on the plumage of a bird, that bird surely becomes a striking gem of nature. If you get a chance to see these creatures, make sure you grasp it.

And, the yellow warbler is among these spectacular yellow birds. Its body, from head to tail, is beautifully covered with gorgeous shades of yellow. A greenish-yellow on the upper parts and a bright yellow flecked with rufous on the lower parts. Who can keep their eyes off these flying yellow balls when spotting them in nature?

The outstanding yellow plumage of this warbler makes it the yellowest member of the New World warbler.

Unlike the male with a gorgeous coat, the female is a bit duller, especially on the head. Juveniles have green-yellow upperparts and duller yellow upperparts.

Both sexes have dark eyes and bill and olive feet.

You can watch the video of this striking bird below.

The yellow warbler is a migrant. These birds prefer living in temperate North America as far south as Central Mexico during the breeding season (from May to June). When it is over, they migrate south to Central and South America for winter. They can be found in brushy habitats near water.

When the breeding season starts, the female uses twigs and grasses to build her cup-shaped nest. She then lays 3-6 eggs in the nest and incubates them for 11 days. She continues to feed the hatchlings for around 45 days until fully fledged.

Yellow warblers feed mainly on insects and spiders hunted in shrubs fairly low to the ground. But they sometimes eat berries.

Currently, the population of this warbler is quite stable regardless of their loss of habit.
