Re: Yellow Throated Vireo

Peter Pyle

Thanks Adam -

Based on this and other photos it is a first-spring bird by the narrow, brown, and pointed rectrices. I get the impression it's on the dull side for this species and so still think female, but then as soon as I say this it will of course start singing! Although vagrant male YTVIs in Marin and elsewhere in central CA do frequently sing, we may never know if it doesn't....Cheers, P

Best of my bad photos here:

There will be better photos than this but here are some crappy ones.
High up in Eucs off NW corner. Seemed to head N when last seen by me
and others around 11:45.

Good luck to those still looking, Peter
