Yellow Warbler

Easter is upon us. I’ll take this sweet yellow bird over a marshmallow peep any day.¬†From Brian:

This is a singing male yellow warbler. I took the photo on 16 May 2009 at Beech Hill. These guys (and many other wood-warblers) will start arriving in early May. The yellow warbler is kind of a backyard warbler — not very hard to spot. Plus, its song is distinctive, memorable, and excruciatingly sweet. In fact, the mnemonic is often written as: “Sweet sweet sweet I’m so sweet!”
