Photo Share: The necklaced warbler

Photo by Jeremy Meyer
Canada Warblers live in North America in the summer and South America in the winter. Males have dark backs and vivid yellow from under their beak and all along the front of their bodies. They are nicknamed “the necklaced warbler” because they have a unique ring of very dark blue markings on their yellow breast and throat. Females are not as brightly colored, but still have a faint necklace marking.

Listen for the song of this bird, a loud chip chewy sweet dichetty and low chup's calls as they migrate through Michigan
