Common yellowthroat warbler
The uncommonly beautiful common yellowthroat warbler is a year-round resident of Marion County. This black-masked bird is often concealed in dense shrubs and reedy marshes. The best way to find one is to listen for its low-pitched, rough call. The free Merlin app makes it easy to identify by sound. This one was photographed at Silver Springs State Park.
