Yellow Warbler (Setophaga petechia)
Remember the lyrics "Yellow bird up high in banana tree"? Well this warbler was actually in a willow tree and he was not alone like Harry Belafonte in the song. This guy was with a number of his friends hunting down caterpillars and other insects.
Yellow warblers are little birds that frequent the tops of shrubs and small trees such as willows, alders and cottonwoods in wetland areas.
And the males love to sing!
