GRAY-CROWNED YELLOWTHROAT, HOCHOB MAYAN RUINS,CAMPECHE,MEXICO, 11/6/2018


       Even thought this Warbler was quite far away and the photo is blurry, we can still ID this Warbler as a Gray-crowned Yellowthroat as follows:
  • Gray crown with black mask (you can just make this out in the photo) between eyes and bill. 
  • Long tail
  • Relatively stout bill. The lower mandible is pinkish and the upper mandible is darker. Again you can just make this out in the photo.
  • Underparts and throat yellow
  • Flanks are darker, but can't tell color from this photo
       The long tail and relatively stout bill distinguish the Gray-crowned Yellowthroat from other Yellowthroats, such as the Common Yellowthroat.

        The Gray-crowned Yellowthroat is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 820.
