The Canada Warbler is known as the “necklaced” warbler, because of the short black stripes around the throat. It is solid gray above, and bright yellow below with the necklace. The female Canada Warbler has fainter coloring. All have yellow “spectacles”. It also lacks any white in the wings and tail. Its habitat is forest undergrowth and shady thickets of which it darts in and out. Its range is from Midwest to the Northeaster States and Canada.

The female is recognized by the yellow face, olive crown and with slight black on throat. The range is mostly the Northeast states and Canada. Their habitat is mainly conifers. I was only able to briefly view the Black-Throated Green Female Warbler as they passed through the area in only a short time. Other bird watchers pointed it out and had previously seen it.
