This male Common Yellowthroat Warbler is the only one I have seen, and the only photo I got. The male is above olive-brown color with a black facemask, a yellow throat, and a whitish belly. There is a white strip marking above the black mask. I didn’t see a female, who is similar except for the black mask. The habitat is swamps, marshes, and wet thickets. The range is the United States and Canada.

The Northern Waterthrush is brown-backed with a pale yellow or creamy eyebrow stripe; under parts striped often yellowish. Often walks at the waters edge in a teetering manner. Habitats are swampy, wet woods, stream sides, lake shores, and thickets. My sighting saw the Northern Waterthrush beside the stream and feeding on insects under the logjam. Needless to say, this made it difficult to photograph.
