Common Yellowthroat Typical multitasking mom! She had at least three bugs in her beak in these shots, and was furiously busy flying around the meadow, collecting food, feeding her nestlings, and visiting her mate. Females have olive-gray coloring on their wings and backs. Yellow coloring on their chest and a faint eye ring. They lack the black mask that males have.

The common yellowthroat is a New World warbler. It is an abundant breeder in North America, ranging from southern Canada to central Mexico. The genus name ''Geothlypis'' is from Ancient Greek ''geo'', "ground", and ''thlupis'', an unidentified small bird; ''thlypis'' is often used in the scientific names of New World warblers. The specific ''trichas'' is also from Greek; ''trikhas'' is a kind of thrush, the word being derived from ''trikhos'', "hair".
