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.
