When I see a common yellowthroat at the beginning of the season, I say to myself am I in the jungle or central Massachusetts. These birds have a tropical feel, perhaps that's because they spend most of the year in central America and only breed here in the US. The male is striking with its bright yellow throat and black mask.
The female is a bit more bland, but her glowing yellow throat gives her away and lives up to her moniker.
Wow! I cannot believe this is the second to last day of the A-Z challenge! I hope you will join me on Monday for the final letter, Z!
This earring design is from an old Bead & Button magazine and it was so easy I memorized it! I believe it was called "Mosaic" and it is a variation of right angle weave. As a reminder, I will hold a drawing of all the names who commented during the a-z challenge and the drawing winner will receive 7 pairs of earrings!
