We’ve been getting a lot of queries about yellow birds in our fair city, so we thought we would introduce you to some of them.
There are many species of small birds with some yellow on them, but these three are the brightest, and the yellowist!
Goldfinches (5 inches) are generally found at backyard niger seed feeders in the city. Females are a duller yellow and do not have the black cap.
Yellow warblers (5 inches) can be found in shrubby areas with lots of cover. Females do not have the dark streaking on the breast.
Western Tanagers (7 inches) prefer coniferous habitats. The bright red head of the males fades to yellow outside the breeding season.
