This is yet another juvenile demanding to be fed by its mother! They are everywhere right now. This is a juvenile Common Yellowthroat, but we also saw a number of juvenile Spotted Towhees, and American Goldfinches, all acting like, well, juveniles. The first female Common Yellowthroat we saw this morning was difficult to identify, but later we saw one with a male, and there was no question. The male Common Yellowthroat’s contrasting colors are anything but common. A few minutes later after firming up our identification we were lucky enough to see some feeding juveniles and I got this photo.
