Eat and Run

Male Common Yellowthroat

I’ve been trying for multiple seasons to get a good shot of a male Common Yellowthroat and I finally managed to get multiple shots in one sitting at the San Diego Botanic Garden! This isĀ my favorite because you can really see the colors on the face.

These little guys never stop moving! It’s like trying to get a shot of a Bushtit, they move around SO much! This one has part of a moth wing and some bark in its mouth heading back to its nest.

Common Tropical

Female Yellow Throat

A female Common Yellowthroat hanging out on a palm tree leaf. I have to admit, one of my favorite things about living in Southern California is the fact that palm trees are everywhere. They are as ‘common’ as this little yellow throat!
