Common Yellowthroat

Common Yellowthroat at Blackhawk Springs Forest Preserve near Rockford, IL; 5/22/10.
Common Yellowthroat at Horicon Marsh Wildlife Refuge, WI, 5/29/10.
Until a couple of weeks ago, I have never seen a Common Yellowthroat before. Apparently it's their turn to have finished their migration back north. I spotted the first one (top photo) at the Kishwaukee Springs Forest Preserve (5/22/10), then a couple more at Rock Cut State Park (5/23/10), and then last weekend I drove north into Wisconsin, and saw a couple more (bottom photo) at the Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge (5/29/10).
