Pirate name: Poncy Henry Goodfellow
Yellow-throated Warbler
Dendroica dominica

Description 5" (13 cm). Gray, unstreaked upperparts, bright yellow throat, white belly, black-and-white facial pattern, heavy black streaks on sides. Sexes alike.

Habitat Forests of pine, cypress, sycamore, and oak, in both swampy places and dry uplands.

Nesting 4 purple-spotted greenish eggs in a nest of grass and bark strips lined with hair and feathers, often set in clumps of Spanish moss or among pine needles.

Range Breeds from Illinois, Ohio, and New Jersey south to Missouri, Texas, Gulf Coast, and northern Florida. Winters from Gulf Coast states southward.

Voice A series of clear ringing notes descending in pitch and increasing in speed, rising abruptly at the end, teeew-teeew-teeew-teeew-tew-tew-twi.

Discussion This attractive warbler is usually found in live oaks draped with Spanish moss or in longleaf pines. It often creeps over the branches of the trunk like a Black-and-white Warbler. Occasionally it may stray, and even breed, as far north of its usual range as New York and southern New England.

Oops! I thought I forgot something. How the hell do you remember where it was taken?

I take it you can't remember due to your vast birding experience, rather than advancing years.:h?: ;)
