Common Yellowthroat

A year 'round Outer Banks resident is the Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas) warbler, pictured here on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. These little birds hang out in dense shrubbery and underbrush along the edge of wetland and marsh areas. With the exception of some of the southwestern region of the United States, the Common Yellowthroat is truly common all over North America.
